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)

    Sounds like we'll get the Spurs-Arsenal postponement news before deadline. Hold your transfers for a bit.

      Postponed because of a red card. Lol

    1. HonestBlatter

      Why Ragnick didn't mention this just hour ago?

    2. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 days, 17 hours ago

      Yes this was rather dubious story that broke earlier this morning- no reason to believe it and Ragnick has said he expects Ronaldo to be fine

    3. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years

      It's both fresh and old.

      Apparently he's okay now.

      Looks like an article from early morning (before Ragnick's presser), I'd trust Ragnick's comment over news rumors.

    Locked and loaded, Trent(C) Mount(VC)
    Starting Raphinha over Foden
    Good luck all

    What are your thoughts on Digne in Aston Villa?

    Considering bringing in KDB for Son. Need to fund the move by selling R.James to a sub 5.2 defender. Thinking Digne could be gold if nailed with possible dgw in gw23 as well.

  4. wulfrunian
    • 5 Years

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

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 days, 17 hours ago

      Think you were replying to me. Thanks 🙂 Cancelo could be one of the new COVID cases for all we know, lol. I do think Regulion is just being rested for the bigger games though, to be honest.

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        4 days, 17 hours ago

        I would start Cancelo as Reguilón may be one of players Conte referred to as not being fit until end of month- but if that’s the case no harm in starting with Cancelo first on bench as think Reguilón either starts or won’t be in squad

    2. wulfrunian

        makes sense now, was a bit confused in isolation.

  5. marcus2704

    Is DCL a viable option yet? I mean, Everton are playing Norwich this week so..

    1. Will Kane
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 days, 17 hours ago

      Very much so

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      4 days, 17 hours ago

      Yep.

      Anyone v Norwich.

    3. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 days, 17 hours ago

      Oh yes.

  6. Will
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    4 days, 17 hours ago

    Toney to King too sideways?

    1. Will Kane
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 days, 17 hours ago

      Probably, especially as King may end up with only 1 game this week

    2. Kaptenen
      • 5 Years
      4 days, 17 hours ago

      Not in my opinion, even though watfords double could be erased they play norwich next week

    3. fplgaruda
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 days, 17 hours ago

      Just play Toney. Bin him next week

  7. MountainBeach
    • 10 Years
    4 days, 17 hours ago

    Any news on Ronaldos injury? Should I just go for Kane to be on the safe side?

    1. EmreCan Hustle
      • 9 Years
      4 days, 17 hours ago

      Kane may not be the safe side

  8. Balance
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    4 days, 17 hours ago

    Appreciate some help!

    A. Foden (CHE) or
    B. Gray (nor)?

    Thanks!

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 7 Years
      4 days, 17 hours ago

      B

  9. Atimis
    • 5 Years
    4 days, 17 hours ago

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

    1. ilikewud
      • 1 Year
      4 days, 17 hours ago

      Kane?

  10. Ask Yourself
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    4 days, 17 hours ago

    So are we still none the wiser about why reguillon has not been in the squad for the last 3 games and whether he’ll play this week?

    1. fplgaruda
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 days, 17 hours ago

      If you already have him.

      1. Put him on the line up.
      2. Pray

      If not.
      1. Don't buy

      Simple

  11. Pringle
    • 8 Years
    4 days, 17 hours ago

    I just dont get why Bruno is so popular in here now all of the sudden? And now Ronaldo is confirmed fit as well.

    1. Will Kane
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 days, 17 hours ago

      DGW mania and severe lack of options

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      4 days, 17 hours ago

      More in hope and desperation.

      Maybe some nostalgia.

    3. EmreCan Hustle
      • 9 Years
      4 days, 17 hours ago

      DGW punt. He only became popular after the news of Leicester postponement and the NLD being at risk.

      1. Harvey_27
          4 days, 17 hours ago

          And of course because Son and Salah owners are looking for direct replacements

      2. Piksau
        • 7 Years
        4 days, 17 hours ago

        The news of Ronaldo's fresh injury broke just as people were finalising their transfers. With him out Bruno is the only viable Utd attacking option. Leicester went from a DGW to SGW, their attacking assets less viable now.Looks also like Utd's both games will go forward.
        It is the perfect storm for a big ol bandwagon to form on Bruno.

        1. Will
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          4 days, 17 hours ago

          But then more recent press conference confirmed Ronaldo is fine

          1. Piksau
            • 7 Years
            4 days, 17 hours ago

            Haha, yeah now everybody's head is turned round.
            This is fun.
            Thank god i played my FH.
            Just chilling and making changes as per the radically evolving situation.

      3. Sterling Archer
        • 4 Years
        4 days, 17 hours ago

        Takes a hit to get to Ronaldo

        Son to Bruno is just your FT

    4. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
      • 2 Years
      4 days, 17 hours ago

      Foster
      TAA Keane Cancelo
      Foden Sterling Trossard Jota Bowen
      Antonio Kane (c)

      Guatia Dalot Broja Cash

      0.0 itb 0ft- Anything worth a hit?

    5. Malinwa
      • 5 Years
      4 days, 17 hours ago

      Best Son replacement?:

      A) Maddison
      B) Bruno
      C) Other ?

      1. Harvey_27
          4 days, 17 hours ago

          No idea but not A I don't think now. I guess B is fine, as the change in formation seems very possible, but think Mount is good too as long as you don't have too many other upcoming blankers from Chelsea, Arsenal, Brighton

          1. Malinwa
            • 5 Years
            4 days, 17 hours ago

            Why not Maddison?

      2. FPL Brains
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        4 days, 17 hours ago

        Got some news about NLD being at risk through the usual Whatsapp groups - thought I'd come here and mention it and it's already here.

        This site is fast.

          Arsenal are running tests today & will most likely not lodge a postponement until tomorrow morning

          Would you free hit this team? Have all chips and 2 FH left

          DDG
          Dias Cancelo Trent
          Gallagher Saka Bowen Foden
          Watkins Antonio Dennis
          Ramsdale James Salah Dier

          I do have 2 FT's and 0.1 in bank.

          1. Gizzachance
            • 7 Years
            4 days, 17 hours ago

            Just use trans

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            4 days, 17 hours ago

            I wouldn't free hit this week, especially with 2 free transfers.

        3. TheBear
          • 12 Years
          4 days, 17 hours ago

          Did 2 transfers early but think I’m happy with team:

          DDG
          Cancelo TTA Coufal
          Jota Foden Maddison Bowen
          Kane (C) Antonio Dennis

          Steele, Bilva, Tierney, Livra

          Only things I’m thinking is Foden or Bilva to start?
          Captain choice?
          Any other changes worth a -4?

        4. TheYogaDaddy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          4 days, 17 hours ago

          De Gea (Foster)
          TAA Cancelo Dias (Johnson) (Livramento)
          Jota Son* Salah* Bowen (Brownhill)
          Antonio Watkins King

          1 ft, 0.0 itb

          a. Salah and Son to Mount and Fernandes (-4)
          b. Salah and Antonio to Mount and Ronaldo (C) (-4).

          1. Thomas Magnum
            • 6 Years
            4 days, 17 hours ago

            A of the two but Mount and Fernandes don’t instill me with lots of confidence. Slim pickings for alternatives though tbf so could still work

        5. Thomas Magnum
          • 6 Years
          4 days, 17 hours ago

          KDB worth bringing in this week ahead of the next 3 nice fixtures or just wait for next week?

        6. Flynny
          • 6 Years
          4 days, 17 hours ago

          Hi...who is best son replacement please?

          A....mount....dgw 22 and some blanks upcoming

          B....raphinha....single game but doubles on the way

          Mount could become Salah eventually......thanks

          1. Thomas Magnum
            • 6 Years
            4 days, 17 hours ago

            I’m not a big fan of either honestly, I’m more tempted with taking a punt with a city mid myself than those two. Mount just feels like a transfer out waiting to happen and Raphinha doesn’t seem all that appealing to me considering how decimated the Leeds squad is

            1. Flynny
              • 6 Years
              4 days, 16 hours ago

              Agree....got foden already though....slim pickings

          have 1ft and 5.6m itb. what move should be done here lads? currently thinking livra -> cucurella or lamptey

          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?

          Kinda stuck here. Kane is my captain for now, but I guess even without DGW he is a decent captain option. Leicester is just so poor defensively that i see Kane scores easily.

          Thoughts? Don't wanna go for Ronaldo anyway, better save FH

            Bruno if I bring him in. Or Jota

          DDG
          Reguilon, TAA, Cancelo, Keane
          Jota, Gray, Bowen
          Antonio, Ronaldo, Dennis

          (Steer, Son*, Dier*, Saka*)

          A) Antonio & Son -> Kane* & Mount*/Jorginho*/Bernardo (-4)
          B) Antonio -> King
          C) Son -> Moura*/Mount*/Jorginho*/Bernardo

          Heading towards A I guess.

          Cheers
