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.

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)

    1. Ron_Swanson
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      You don’t need to WC then

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

        James, Livra, Foden, ESR, Son

        Plus Watkins

    2. Make Arrows Green Again
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Then do you need to WC?

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

        3 red flags and two orange and a lot of dead weight lol

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

      Then don't

    4. AC Yew
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Worst time to wc!

    5. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      WC thinking this is a SGW. Will help you a lot I think.

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

        Yeh the only DGW players I’m considering are a United defender and possibly King

  2. Cojones of Destiny
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    A. Armstrong + Saka to Gray + Ron for a hit?

  3. MountainBeach
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Thinking of Salah to Maddison/Raphinha and Antonio/Watkins to Ronaldo. Thoughts?

    1. Cojones of Destiny
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      yes with Raph

    2. Salan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Still Maddison?

      And, I will not ship out Antonio or Watkins (potential dgw23)

      1. MountainBeach
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        Who’s a better option?True but Ronaldo has a DGW right now. Was there any news on his injury?

  4. wulfrunian
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Now that Christensen is out do you think that Chelsea will play with 4 in defence?

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

      Azpi could play as a CB too

    2. Salan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Tuchel will not change the formation at the start.

    3. Rains of Castamere
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      Kepa
      CHO - Azpi - Silva - Rudiger - Alonso
      Kante - Jorginho
      Mount - Havertz - Werner

      Would be my guess

      1. fricky_
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 5 days ago

        Kovacic injured or something?

  5. Strchld
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    A) Son to Bruno (C)
    B) Son and Gelhard to Gray and Ronaldo (C) -4?

    1. EmreCan Hustle
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Ronaldo

    2. Terry the Terrier
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 6 days ago

      I would say B. Not a fan of A.

      PS Can you afford Broja? I think he's a better bet going forward than Gelhard

      1. Strchld
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        I could, but won't get him over Ronaldo.

        1. Terry the Terrier
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 5 days ago

          Misread makes sense thought you were changing two FWs

  6. CobraKai
    • 12 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Fabianski

    White / Keana / TAA / Cancelo / Liveramento

    Mount / Raphinha / Salah / Bowen / Gray

    Ron / Dennis / Broja

    Livramento to: ??

    A) Rudiger
    B) Maguire
    C) Reguilon

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

    I have Ramsdale & Foster

    a) Ramsdale > De Gea (-4)
    b) Foster > Sanchez (-4)
    c) None

  8. fplgaruda
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Feel bad for Leeds when it came to GW 18 against Arsenal

    They line up
    MESLIER
    AYLING
    DALLAS
    KOCH
    drameh
    KLICH
    FORSHAW
    RAPHINHA
    HARRISON
    ROBERTS
    GELHARDT

    The bench:
    Summerville
    Greenwood
    McCaron
    Gray
    Kenneh
    Bate
    Klaesson
    Jenkins
    Moore

    Only 9 senior outfield players.
    Appreciated that, or they're just so naive and hadnt crack the cheat code.
    They lost 3 points in the league just because of the game went ahead.

    In other hand, LCFC...

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

      That's Bielsa for you. Too honest.

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

      They played City and Arsenal when they didn’t have to but when it came to Liverpool it had to be cancelled…

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

      9 outfield players (including Gelhardt that only played 179 mins of PL game at that time.

      Where's the justice?

    4. LangerznMash
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      I think we got screwed because some of the teenagers had already played a few minutes of prem football, they got classed as first team players (for the purpose of being allowed to postpone due to numbers). It is kind of like a punishment for giving youth players a chance.

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

        Too bad

  9. winchester
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 6 days ago

    hi lads, have 1ft and 5.6m itb. what move should be done here lads?

    ddg
    taa - cancelo - reguilon
    bernardo - jota - bowen - son*
    antonio - watkins - dennis

    (foster - saka - keane - livra)

    a) livra -> cucurella/lamptey
    b) son -> bruno/kdb
    c) watkins or antonio -> ronaldo/kane
    d) something else?

    1. JoeSoap
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Maybe C Antonio or Son>Moura or both

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

        cheers. antonio -> ronaldo then?

        1. JoeSoap
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 5 days ago

          Would agree with below

    2. Terry the Terrier
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 6 days ago

      I would say C shipping Antonio (I'd defo keep Watkins). I'd go Kane over Ronaldo. I don't like how Man U are playing and both their games are away plus Ronaldo's a slight injury doubt to may not play 90 in both games. Appreciate Spurs aren't setting the world on fire either though

  10. JoeSoap
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Does Laca/Son>Dennis/Jota seem the best option for a hit?

    Not mush on the bench though unless I take another hit.(5m left after transfers, a double player might work)

    D Gea
    Alonso, Cancelo, TAA
    Son, Bilva, Bowen, Gallagher
    Antonio, Ronaldo, Laca
    Foster, Johnston, Livra, Luiz,

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Not worth hitting into Dennis for Newcastle alone.

      May as well play Lacazette.

      Burnley v Watford has to be a doubt for Tuesday.

      1. JoeSoap
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 5 days ago

        Good point, thanks

  11. Cok3y5murf
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Conte say anything about Reguilon?

    1. DannyDrinkVodka
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      there seems to be an unspoken rule about ever mentioning Reguilon

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

        First rule of Regulion club …

  12. AC Yew
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Best replacement for Dier preferably someone who plays twice. Yes I'm aware we will probably end up with no double games this week the way things are going!

  13. Ruinenlust
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Any more news?

    1. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      More parties uncovered at no10.

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        Andrew know longer royal material.

    2. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Brewing for war in Europe, while we worry about our FPL teams

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

      Newcastle got Wood to stiffen up their attack.

  14. Bollard
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Do i play Cancelo over any of these 4: TAA(BRE), Alonso. Rudiger (bha/mci), Lampety (CRY/CHE)

    My Midfield and Forward line up is locked as far as im concerned, so its just about getting the back 4 sorted.

    Thanks

  15. Obi Wan Elokobi
    • 11 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Start Keane or Cancelo?

    1. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Cancelo

  16. Weak Become Heros
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Foster to DDG for a hit or just play Foster and hope? Ramsdale on bench.

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

      Thinking this also. If NLD is off you may have no playing keeper so the hit will definitely be worth it

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

      DDG seems to be worth the hit in this case

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

    Really waiting on news of the Arsenal v Spurs game

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

      You'll get it soon.

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

      Cause ars have injuries suspensions not covid cases?
      And a rest before the efl second leg !

    3. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Hopefully get it before deadline. It’ll be the difference in my captain choice.

  18. Diro
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 6 days ago

    DDG
    Rudiger, TAA, Cancelo
    Jota, Bernardo, Son, Bowen
    Antonio, Watkins, Dennis

    Sub : Forster, Martinelli, James, Livra

    1FT

    a) Martinelli for Son and don't do transfers
    b) Watkins & Son > Ronaldo & ??

    1. NikKaiseR
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 5 days ago

      I'm in the exact same spot, just have Coufal to come from the bench instead of Martinelli. Also killed my 1 FT because I brought Son in for Salah early to avoid prices changes. Yesterday I was thinking Son+Watkins --> Maddison+Ronaldo (C) for a -8 (!), after the Lei postponement I was thinking Moura+Ronaldo, but I am afraid Ars-Spurs might be postponed and there are new concerns about Ronaldo injury. I am now considering leaving the team as it is. Cannot bring Ronaldo in without the -8 and I am thinking it is not worth it with all the injury doubt and no viable mid option. Not sure who to captain though, was considering Dennis, but again he might get one game if the Burnley game is postponed.

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

    Guys would you lose either Watkins or Antonio for Dennis for a hit?

    A) Yes
    B) No

    1. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      No.

    2. EmreCan Hustle

      B

    3. Terry the Terrier
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      7 months, 5 days ago

      No

  20. TheTinman
    • 7 Years

    Any advice on when is the best time to get Wood and how to fit Wood in?

    1. Weak Become Heros

      There are websites for this.

  21. Ajax Hamsterdam

    Think I will stick with 3 dgws can't see anyone worth taking a hit

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Sanchez trossard and Ronaldo

  22. Buck The Trent

    Do you think bur-wat will be on in 4 days time taking into account iso time ?

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

      doubt it ..

    2. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Who knows? I'll start King anyway since Newcastle are dodgy anyway.

  23. Hazz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Feels like madness to even suggest this, but it's a mad season.

    If Regulion loses the ARS fixture, would you start him or Cancelo (CHE)? Doubt we'll find out before the deadline... but you never know.

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

      Cancelo

    2. Cok3y5murf
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Was just gonna post this. Feels 50-50

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

      I currently have Regulion on my bench despite his double … waiting for info …

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

      Cancelo

    5. wulfrunian
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      I would start Cancelo because if we don't have any further information he might be still injured against Leicester.

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

      Crazy, eh? Thanks all. Food for though. What a stinking DGW!

  24. JBG
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Think I have to take -8 now... Arsenal v Spurs in jeopardy of being postponed now. Son+Ødegaard+Ramsdale out for Bruno+????+DDG.

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

    1) Salah > Bruno
    2) Antonio > Dennis
    3) Salah & Antonio > Mount & CR7 (-4)

  26. daftvaper
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Kane and Fernandes in (for Vardy and Salah)

    1. daftvaper

    Guys Whats the latest update on Reguilon?

    Wasnt mentioned in pressers by Conte.

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      There isn't one.

  28. DannyDrinkVodka
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Better captain option:

    A) CR7
    B) Bruno

    1. Cojones of Destiny
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      a

  29. ZTF
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Those games Norwich & Leeds were forced to play, and lose, a few weeks back look unbelievably unfair now that Arsenal are potentially getting games postponed for injury and suspension.

    Note that Arsenal got to play both of those teams as well! To 4-1 and 5-0 wins

  30. Atimis
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Ronaldo (c), not excited at all bu possibly the only reasonable way to go
