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)

    Son and Laca -> Bowen and Ronny (-4)

    Good call?

    1. PascalCygan
      • 4 Years
      4 days, 17 hours ago

      Yes, good moves

    2. Harvey_27
        4 days, 17 hours ago

        I approve these moves.

      Any idea when we can expect the Scout Picks?

    4. vincentwsho
      • 3 Years
      4 days, 17 hours ago

      What to do?

      A) Martinelli to Trossard
      B) save FT, play Foden
      C) save FT, play Coufal
      D) save FT, play Reguilon

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

        b

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

        I like A

      3. Harvey_27
          4 days, 17 hours ago

          B then C are the most sensible, A is probably the most exciting, if only because Brighton seem one of the most likely to get a DGW this week. However, bear in mind the upcoming blank for Brighton

      4. tokara
        • 7 Years
        4 days, 17 hours ago

        Do we think Ben Foster will start

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years

          No he's not fit yet

        2. TFP
          • 11 Years
          4 days, 17 hours ago

          no, but i'm making him my first choice, with a definitely playing [sgw] keeper on the bench, just in case he does.

        3. Tonyawesome69

          Trained with the full squad and available for selection

          Max one game imo.

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

        Stumped. What do you reckon?

        A) Son to Bruno (-4)
        B) Son to Trossard + Edouard to Ronaldo (-8)
        C) Son to Mount (-4)
        D) Something else?

          what did u use ur FT on ?

          really tough one to say atm maybe B I guess but not sure Ronaldo is fully fit

          1. PascalCygan
            • 4 Years
            4 days, 17 hours ago

            Thanks. I did Salah to Maddison. Long story! Basically went against everything I’ve done over the past few weeks in a moment of madness.

          Nice team. If anything, just Son to someone. Mount, Trossard, Bruno etc. Could save there though

      7. rokonto
        • 6 Years
        4 days, 17 hours ago

        Atm I've only got 4 dgw players.
        Alonso Sanchez Toney and Dennis.
        Who should I captain?
        Sanchez?

      8. Steve McCroskey

          2 games

        2. Tonyawesome69
          • 3 Years
          4 days, 17 hours ago

          Lack of options unfortunately

        3. fplgaruda

          Tuchel

        4. Finding Timo
          • 1 Year

          I wasn’t getting him but now tempted as 2 games

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

          Probably from the same place as Bruno love, just from a little bit more sensible sector

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years

          Double blank looming.

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

          Lack of options

        8. Reece’s Pieces
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          4 days, 17 hours ago

          He should play and do well enough. Better if you already own him.

          I'm thinking Son > KDB as he is motivated vs Chelsea and it gets him for solid fixtures or a straight Salah swap

        9. Top Mark.S
          • 4 Years
          4 days, 17 hours ago

          Agree. My option is moura

      9. FFSbet.com

        If some game is added after deadline what happens,we get points for that game or not?

        1. Reacher

          Wont happen, would be as part of the following GW

        Captain bruno or Ronaldo???

        Plzz help

        1. Harvey_27
            4 days, 17 hours ago

            Fair question. If you have both, that's already nice for this DGW. I think underlying stats and overlying(?) stats say CR7 but Bruno might end up being a shockingly good differential

          • FPL Brains
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            4 days, 17 hours ago

            Both

        2. bitm2007
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          4 days, 17 hours ago

          Is there a viable captaincy option who's nailed on to play twice this DGW ?

          Ronaldo (doubtful for Villa)
          Kane (Arsenal game in doubt)
          Dennis/King (Burnley game in double)
          Chelsea & Brentford have poor fixtures

          That just least Brighton, or a United punt, or a SGW player. A Liverpool player without Salah/Mane, not for me. Captain Sanchez ?

          1. Kay317
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            4 days, 17 hours ago

            Don't think Ronaldo is in doubt for villa is he? He's been training

            1. bitm2007
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years

              Rag said should be available depending on final training session.

          Son > Moura worth a -4?

          2. Harvey_27
              4 days, 17 hours ago

              No, Moura seems increasingly likely to only play once

                • 3 Years

            Livra is 50% and Ralph said he’s out so don’t really get it. Does it need some time to update or they are just messing with us? Thanks.

              His injury is fluid on the knee due to meniscus problem. It's hard to predict a return on that injury. Could be fine shortly or could be out for a while

                1) Bowen

                  I'm assuming Arteta didn't do a presser as expected? Too busy in discussions with the PL about calling off the Spurs game I suppose. 2 of my 3 Arsenal players are flagged and with no updates from Arteta then I'm edging ever closer to FH despite the absolute lack of good options....

                    Sky sports have reported one but seems mostly about Conte

                  Anyone got a time machine?

                  I’d like to use it to undo getting in Maddison, Ronaldo and Lucas for -8 late last night (yes I know, but I had exact funds and Salah and son were both supposed to drop, per FPLStatistics)

                    I got Maddison in for Son last night too. At least he has one game. It's a crap shoot right now anyways.

                      I’m just waiting for the Arsenal game to be called off to confirm I paid 8 points for SGW Maddison and Lucas…

                        Yh but I only have one FH left and it’s gonna be very valuable around GW30 ish/whenever the latter FA cup rounds cause lots of blanks.

                    Lukaku a better punt that Ronaldo / Fernandes?

                        no, but still a nice punt, though beware all those Chelsea blanks coming up

                        What is riskier from OR perspective?
                        A. Not having Ronaldo (have Kane and Dennis). Will have to take hit and sacrifice Antonio.
                        B. Not having Jota. Will get in for Son using FT
