Even if you’re left cursing a disastrous Double Gameweek score in Fantasy Premier League (FPL), winning a cool £10,000 will be a nice tonic come Sunday evening.

This is all thanks to the free-to-play weekly Fantasy5 game, where there are various other prizes on offer beyond the whopping jackpot:

You can even set up a mini-league and compete with colleagues, friends and family.

Fantasy5 has now migrated over to BoyleSports, with the below graphic explanation what the new partnership means for UK/Irish-based players.

HOW TO PLAY

It’s as simple as this: pick five players from the nominated Gameweek 26 matches below and, if they all exceed their ‘points targets’ (a par score set by Fantasy5 for each asset), you’ll be in the money:

  • Liverpool v Norwich City
  • Aston Villa v Watford
  • Manchester City v Tottenham
  • Leeds United v Manchester United
  • Wolverhampton Wanderers v Brentford

Even if you don’t succeed in getting all five right, Fantasy5’s leaderboard allows you to win prizes beyond the £10k jackpot.

We have selected our own picks for Gameweek 26, which can you can read below.

The deadline for this week’s entries is at 15:00 BST on Saturday 19 February.

SCOUT’S GAMEWEEK 26 PICKS

With all FPL eyes on Liverpool duo Mohamed Salah (12.5) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (9.5) ahead of Double Gameweek 26, it could be easy to ignore the form of Andrew Robertson (8.5). The left-back has returned at least six FPL points in each of his last five outings thanks to one goal, four assists and three clean sheets. Although Fantasy5 will only take their first match into account, grabbing a clean sheet and assist against Norwich City will beat his points target.

A slighty riskier pick is Danny Ings (6.5), given his recent role of being a substitute. However, a free-to-play game is a good place to take risks and it could pay off if Ings start ahead of Ollie Watkins (6.5), who is without a goal in five matches. The Aston Villa man has scored four times from his last three league meetings with Watford – including the opening day of this season – to grab 29 FPL points.

Gameweek 1 also brought a hat-trick for Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes (8.5) against Leeds United. Fresh off his stoppage-time goal against Brighton and Hove Albion in midweek, he is backed to succeed here by following up his 20-point and 17-point FPL hauls from three meetings with Marcelo Bielsa’s side.

The selections of Lucas Moura (5.5) and Raul Jimenez (6.5) are less obvious. Spurs’ attacking midfielder plays away at league leaders Manchester City but all it takes is one goal to beat his generous points target, whilst Jimenez plays for low-scoring Wolves. With two goals from his last three matches, he faces a leaky Leicester City defence.

HOW DOES FANTASY5 WORK?

Fantasy5 is easy to play as it follows the exact same scoring system as FPL, just without the bonus points.

It’s also the fastest media outlet for live Fantasy points, displaying all player points from the five games in question, as well as the live score and time.

For the more detailed lowdown, head here.

The competition is limited to one entry per person per round and selections must be submitted before kick-off of the first eligible match.

If two or more entrants correctly select five players who all score more than their points target, then the prize pot is split among all winners.

    Sorry if this has been discussed already but is there any real danger of games being cancelled due to bad weather?

      5 months, 20 days ago

      The weather is fine today so will all go ahead from that side.

      There may be residual storm damage we don’t know about yet.

      Also some trains aren’t running yet as lines need to be cleared t

        I would be fairly confident they will all go ahead.

    Ramsdale
    TAA, Cancelo, Robbo
    Salah (TC), Saka, Bowen Raph, Coutinho
    Dennis, Antonio

    Foster, DCL, Dawson, Livra

    I don;t have WC, I have 2 FT, TC and BB.

    1. Killitzer
      • 12 Years
      5 months, 20 days ago

      Wouldn’t you want to bring in Salah for DGW instead of Rashforf captain for 1 game?!

  6. DavvaMC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 20 days ago

    Those that were planning to WC in 28 have you now shifted to Wildcard this gameweek?

    1. Killitzer
      • 12 Years
      5 months, 20 days ago

      I would have done but I had already triggered my FH. Literally an hour before they made the announcement

  7. RamaJama
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    5 months, 20 days ago

    Already on -4, worth another hit DDG to Sa thinking long term?

    1. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 20 days ago

      Yes, just. But I'd go Ramsdale

  10. RossoneriHammer
    • 6 Years
    5 months, 20 days ago

    Start Dawson at home to Newcastle or -4 to replace Jota?

      B

  12. Ludde
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 20 days ago

    Bowen or Raphinha on a WC? Cancelo or a DGW player on WC?

    Already got TAA, Tierney, Digne and Saiss

  13. George Agdgdgwngo
    • 12 Years
    5 months, 20 days ago

    Why are lots of people planning to WC in gw28?

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      5 months, 20 days ago

      The new double game weeks

      1. RamaJama
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 20 days ago

        But followed by A big blank with only 3 fixtures in GW 30 will require to burn another chip already

    2. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 20 days ago

      I think it was a popular WC weel already but even more so now with 2 DGW

    3. vova
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 20 days ago

      I'm planning after yesterday's double gameweek fixture reveal. I think it gives me a good chance to update my squad (have no Wolves), navigate the DGWs and Blank Gameweek as well as potentially use my BB in DGW 29

    4. frenchfries
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 20 days ago

      Was planning it before the doubles, know more about fixtures in gw 30 and also got some fixtureswings. Now with doubles its even better

    5. DavvaMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 20 days ago

      I planned to WC in 28 but considering WC now. What do you think?

      Current team

      De Gea

      Cancelo | TAA | Ait Nouri

      Salah | Bowen | Foden | Jota | Zaha

      Broja | Edouard

      BENCH: Gunnarsson / Cash / Pedro / Johnson

      1. -GK22-
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 20 days ago

        No WC needed

        1. DavvaMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          5 months, 20 days ago

          If I don't it would mean a -8 or -12 this week and also hits the following weeks.

  14. stamboy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    5 months, 20 days ago

    Tough decisions...

    Which 2 should I play out of these:

    1) King (AV a, CP h)
    2) Digne (Wat h)
    3) Ramsey (Wat h)
    4) Raphinha (MU h Liv a)
    5) Maupay (Bur h)

    Currently on 1+4 but thinking perhaps 2 should be included.

    Thoughts.....?

    Thanks in advance.

    What is really an acceptable amount of hits, I've gone from doing -8 to now wanting to do a -16 after laughing at others for doing the same.

  22. Saintjack01
      5 months, 20 days ago

      Lacazette or gabriel

      Is Reguilon actually out? All I’ve seen is a link to a article where pundits discuss their ideal line ups…

    • enrico.palazzo

      Thoughts on this -8?
      Jota > Saka
      Bruno > salah
      Ronaldo > jiminez

      Not saying I won't WC... but using it gets you 24 players. I have 28 with BB. Happier using BB and then having WC and FH left. Out shopping. Left wallet at home but was only a few minutes gone. That's yesterday's wine to blame.
