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)

    Salah, Son, Boja to Bowen, Ronaldo and Foden (-8)? Got Gallagher as first sub for Foden

      Yes

      not many will be taking a -8 for just one extra DGW player.

      1. The Tinkerman
        • 6 Years

        I did by mistake if that’s any help

      2. Tshelby
        • 7 Years

        Keep one of Son or Salah than?

    3. TB303
      • 4 Years
      4 days, 17 hours ago

      Will Foden play?

    4. Ze_Austin

      I like these as mid-term moves

      I hope there's a Salah-back plan for GW24 though

    About to reach the stage where the hate for the game fades away and indifference sets in.

    1. Shattered Dreams
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      I think there's ground to be made just by sticking with it, but its the least fun season I can remember that's for certain.

      1. Echoes

        4 days, 17 hours ago

        Yeah, the game depends on so much random luck atm it's unreal. But yeah, you're right. Just riding it out will see you climb, as I know a guy in the Top 10k who stopped playing due to the ongoing craziness about a couple weeks ago.

    Son is out. Bench boost is off. I’ve no idea what I’m doing anymore so I’m just going to use one FT for Bruno and have two next week again. Can’t trust the Spurs-Arsenal fixture enough to invest.

    Who to bench out of Davies, Dias and Gallagher?

    Sanchez
    Trent Rudiger Davies
    Bruno Gallagher Jota Raphinha
    Ronaldo(c) Antonio King

    Dias White Brownhill

              No idea, my team still has Xmas lights lit up. Livra Salah Son Scarlet… don’t where to start really. Perhaps a beer as a first step..

              1. Jafooli

                I just played FH because I couldn’t be @rsed trying to work out what to do 😆

  6. Michu stole my mojo

    Kane & Lamptey or Dennis & Royal?

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

      A

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

        Even though Kane might only have one game? I mean, the assumption here is that Kane is captained? Would rather give Bruno or Dennis the armband. A few hours yet. Will see if I am even sober by the deadline.

        1. danjaman
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years

          Dennis likely to have one game if Burnley game off.

  12. Disturbed

    Mount or trosaard?

  13. Kay317

    Play two:

    A) Maddison
    B) Watkins
    C) Coufal

    1. Kaptenen

  14. Cok3y5murf
    • 5 Years
    4 days, 17 hours ago

    With only Ramsdale (postponement risk) and fodder GK, would you take a hit for a GK?

    1. Will Kane
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 days, 16 hours ago

      I'm wondering the same - probably will for a DGW keeper. Annoyingly my 2nd keeper is Foster but I have no idea if he will get his place back straight away....

      1. TFP
        • 11 Years
        4 days, 16 hours ago

        Yeah, i'm in the same, relatively common situation. If Ramsdale is quite likely to blank this week [& even if he plays, it'll be a relatively tough fixture] and/or in GW25, then getting in DDG, who seems almost certain to double this week and then has pretty OK fixtures with no blanks, doesn't feel like a terrible move.

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

    Best defender >5.2mil long term?
    A) Digne
    B) Tierney
    C) Semedo

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

      Digne ( but prefer Cash)

      1. Kaptenen
        • 5 Years
        4 days, 16 hours ago

        Cheers, do you think Cash is more nailed? Think Digne could be gold if he nails down the spot.

        1. dunas_dog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          4 days, 16 hours ago

          For now yes as Targett still a good player and will compete for spot

  16. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…

    worth Kean -> Lamptey for -4? and bench Watkins or Cancelo?

      Foster

    2. Jafooli

  18. Catastrophe
    • 11 Years
    4 days, 17 hours ago

    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*/Trossard*/Bernardo/KDB

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

    Cheers.
