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)

      Chaotic gameweek. I guess it will be crucial who you gonna (C). Tempted to cap SGW like bowen or TAA.

          Or maybe a DGW with the highest chance of getting both games, which feels like Brighton and Chelsea at this point

            Liverpool did not inspire me last night so I’ve gone for Bowen.

          Is Broja injured??

            Head injury in the previous game. Received treatment and walked off fine. I don't think he's injured,but I also don't know the PL norms on head injuries.

            It was just a ball to the face

          One more time 😀

          Which is better?

          A- Ronaldo + Trossarr
          B- Maupay + Bruno

          1. Ha.
            • 6 Years

            A

            I'm leaning towards A.

          4. Pegboy
            • 11 Years
            4 days, 17 hours ago

            A. I'd rather KDB/Sterling over Bruno.

          Thinking of bringing in Rashford, seems to have his mojo back...

            Have you watched him recently? He seems to kick his mojo further away in each match

          2. AARON-1
              4 days, 17 hours ago

              This is a tongue in cheek post, surely. Rashford has been woeful of late. Overhitting simple balls into the channels, surrendering possession and not having any kind of impact on matches. Plus he seems sulky.

            Son to (A) Maddison or (B) Mount?
            Also best replacement for Regulion? (Have James and Liv out)

                Big dilemma, need opinions

                I can move antonio or king to ronaldo for free, or broja to ronaldo (-4)

                Only issue is the extra transfer to get salah back in 1/2 gameweeks, is it worth it?

                I could hold this team or get in DCL for broja and captain jota

                TAA Cancelo Reguilon

                  4 days, 17 hours ago

                  DdG is a really underrated (C) option.

                  1. No Professionals
                    • 4 Years
                    4 days, 17 hours ago

                    not really. I'd rather go Jota or Bowen.

                    1. 824545201
                      • 5 Years
                      4 days, 17 hours ago

                      I would never, ever captain mister i never, under any circumstance get any bonus points whatsoever: Diogo Jota.
                      TAA, Bowen, Antonio are great captain options.
                      But, from the DGW players available, DdG is among the safest options.

                    Will definitely concede against Villa, but save points surely. Good chance of cs against Brentford though

                  3. AARON-1
                      4 days, 17 hours ago

                      May get save points. I think Villa will score. May keep a clean sheet against Brentford but I wouldn't stake my mortgage on it. If I were forced to bet, I'd say he will get 5-6 pts over the double.

                        • 5 Years
                        4 days, 17 hours ago

                        You mean the game in which MU had a clean sheet?

                          4 days, 17 hours ago

                          Yes, the game in which we kept a clean sheet (and were extremely lucky to not concede 3 or 4 goals including 2 disallowed goals!).

                          You'd be nuts to captain DDG.

                      I am thinking this also. If he keeps a clean sheet in 1 of the 2 games he will be pushing 10 points with save points. 2 clean sheets and it has to be 15+ points. So 5 - 15 is a realistic points spread. I am struggling to think of a player more likely to get close to this. Sure many players could, but realistically this week in it a big gamble whoever you choose.

                    Bit stumped now with no Leicester DGW and now no bench. Help appreciated! 1FT, 1.8 ITB.

                    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 & Son -> King* & KDB
                    C) Antonio -> King
                    D) Son -> Moura*/Mount*/Jorginho*/Bernardo/KDB

                    Heading towards A I guess, which also gives me one starter on the bench (Keane).

                    Cheers

                      Arteta - "The extra motivation to play a derby brings the energy when you don't have it. No excuses, we have to play it."

                      I've got 3 dgw defenders as it stands.

                      So I'm playing Trent as a 4th defender.

                      Would you play either Gundogan or Lacazette ahead of TAA?

                        Can see spurs and Watford DGW not happening. So thinking long term. Robertson and mount for James and foden, or would you bring a Watford striker in?

                        Trossard to Son this week and 1 more

                        Pukki out for:
                        A) Ronaldo
                        B) Dennis

                          A

                          Dennis may only have Newcastle.

                          I assume you mean Son to Tross...

                          KDB and Jota looks great, not sure about Varane

                          Well does not sound like Watford will have dgw at the end

                        What do you think about Digne in avl?
                        Might move to him early to fund another transfer. Dgw in 23 also looks possible for villa.

                        Ok. I’m not arguing that Mount is a better player than Ronaldo. Obviously. But for this week only…

                        Mount appears to have 2 games and there’s doubts Ron will play both.

                        Note. Mount has actually out scored Ronnie this year. Both in total points, and also in single game week ceiling.

                        This week is a mess anyway and we are meant to be playing for fun / escape from reality.

                        Any of you tempted?

                          Who will you captain if you don't get Ronaldo?

                          Yes I think Mount is an option

                          Not intrested, Yeah Ronaldo might not play both, but even if Mount plays both, then one of them is the worst fixture there can be rightnow
