FFS Cup

The latest FFS Members Cup fixtures and results

A Premier League title, European qualification places and a relegation spot are on the line in Gameweek 38 but more important than all of that (citation needed) is the final of the FFS Members Cup.

A total of 256 Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers, and many more beyond that in qualifying, have been whittled down to just two as we gear up for the final weekend.

A total of £300-worth of prizes is on offer in this tournament, with a full breakdown towards the bottom of this article.

RESULTS AND DRAW

The results for the semi-finals can be viewed here.

The semi-final between glennloite and Chaballer looked like a real humdinger, as it ended in an 86-all draw; Chaballer progressed due to his superior overall rank.

However, victory was assured for our first finalist as early as last Sunday, as both managers picked exactly the same starting XI on their Free Hit!

The all-top-10k clash between **Farke Life** and Peteski went the way of the former, who triumphed by 102-83.

Again, both managers activated their Free Hit, with nine out of the 11 selected starters identical.

**Farke Life**’s win was effectively all to do with the captaincy, with the victor backing Richarlison (£7.6m) with the armband. Peteski, by contrast, made Danny Ings (£7.7m) his skipper.

Both Chaballer and **Farke Life** revert to their non-Free Hit sides in Gameweek 38, and here’s how those squads looked respectively in Gameweek 36:

The two managers shared six starters in Gameweek 36.

It’ll be interesting to see what our finalists do with Mohamed Salah (£13.1m) given that they already own Son Heung-min (£11.2m), while much-feared rotation from Thomas Tuchel could be really key given that four Chelsea players are owned across the two squads.

Defeated semi-finalists glennloite and Peteski now contest the third-place play-off for a podium finish.

HOW DO THE CUP COMPETITIONS WORK?

The FFS Cup is very similar to the Fantasy Premier League’s own cup game.

Entrants who qualify for the first round were randomly drawn against each other and the winner of the tie is whoever has the highest score from that Gameweek, minus points spent on transfers (like in the original game and in head-to-head scores).

In the event of a draw, the manager highest in the overall FPL rankings after the tie will progress.

WHAT IS THE GAMEWEEK SCHEDULE?

The FFS Cup competition will be played out according to the following proposed Gameweek schedule:

  • Qualifying – Gameweek 30
  • Round 1 – Gameweek 31
  • Round 2 – Gameweek 32
  • Round 3 – Gameweek 33
  • Round 4 – Gameweek 34
  • Round 5 – Gameweek 35
  • Quarter-Final – Gameweek 36
  • Semi-Finals – Gameweek 37
  • Final and third-place play-off – Gameweek 38

WHEN ARE THE FIXTURES RELEASED?

Where possible, the fixture list for each round will be published before each Gameweek deadline.

    Gray+Mateta to H.Barnes and A.Barnes for -4? Exact cash and need 0.1 otherwise for Gray to Barnes straight.

    Other option is Gray to max 6.4 mid for no hit. My worry here is Mateta minutes, as I'd have to play him.

    1. Original Sin
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Mateta playing against MUN at home. He can do well and match with H.Barnes. is he likely to be benched?

      1. Phlajo
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        They're just rotation prone upfront, so it's likely.

        Seems insane to take a hit for A. Barnes anyway, so probably gonna just do the Gray to Eriksen/JWP or something like that

  2. Original Sin

    Bench one.
    A. Saka vs EVE(H)

        I am currently on A. Any reason for benching Zaha against MUN? I thought he could explode against MUN

        1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 28 days ago

          He could. But Arsenal have to win.

    4. artvandelay316

      Zaha

    5. MyNameIsRedro

      A

      Atkinson’s in charge - his final game and he hates Utd and Zaha’s on pens.

  3. Cheeto__Bandito

    Nketiah (EVE) or Barnes (SOU), who scores more?

    1. artvandelay316
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 28 days ago

      I think Barnes, if he plays.

    2. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Barnes

    3. sulldaddy
      • 12 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Barnes

  4. Lh909
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 28 days ago

    Rudiger to Reece James worth it? Would mean playing Gordon.
    Or can keep Rudiger and get Matip and bench Gordon.
    Alternatively, do the Rudiger to James move and get Matip for - 4. This is doing my head in. TIA

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Get Matip, bench Gordon

      1. Lh909
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        Cheers

    2. Pep's Money Laundry
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Rudiger & Matip are the better combo then James & Gordon

      1. Lh909
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        Cheers

    3. Futureform
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Reckon Rudiger will fire some 30 yard bullets on his last game for the club ever, so would definitely play him.

  5. artvandelay316
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 28 days ago

    Do I go.....
    A) KDB to Son, Broja to Gelhardt and Saka to Luis Diaz for -8
    B) KDB to Son and Saka to Maddison for -4?
    C) Just KDB to Son for free

    Other mids and forwards are
    Mount, Kulu, Zaha
    Kane, Richarlison

    Cheers.

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Don't like any of those options
      But you seem desperate to get Son, so C if you must.

    2. T0RR3S
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      KDB to son and play Saka instead of richarlison

  6. Nespinha
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 28 days ago

    Top 3K atm

    Schmeicel
    James Alonso TAA Matip Cancelo
    Son(C) Mount KDB Saka
    Nketiah
    Foster Gordon Pukki Dennis

    Concerned for rotations, worth a - 4 hit for Dennis to Toney?

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      No, you have a decent bench already

    2. T0RR3S
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      no

  7. Pep's Money Laundry
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 28 days ago

    Sadio Mane has scored in each of the last 3 final days including a brace last season and a brace against Wolves 3 seasons ago

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      He can do it again for sure.
      But he has three double digits all season.

      1. jay01
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        Time for the fourth?

    2. Futureform
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Certainly it's possible.

  8. L S P
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 28 days ago

    19pts off Top 10k, no Sp*rs. How do I get there?

    A) Salah->Mane(C)
    B) Salah->Son, C a differential (KDB)
    C) Salah/Dennis->Kane(C)/Maddison or Barnes for -4
    D) Salah/Coutinho->Mane(C)/Maddison or Barnes for -4
    E) Keep Salah, replace Coutinho w FT

    Cheers.

    1. T0RR3S

      play Ings/Gordon instead of Weghorst

    2. Wild Card this!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Maybe Ming’s for James and bench Weghorst

  10. Original Sin
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 28 days ago

    Bench one
    A. Richarlison vs ARS (A)
    B. Saka vs EVE (H)
    Richarlison is on Form and EVE seems quite good defensively lately. Hence i wanted to bench SAKA over Richarlison

  11. Ëð

    Richarlison to Toney worth a hit? Already on -4 this week.

    Schmeichel
    Alonso, Robertson, James, Cancelo
    Son(c), Saka, Mount, Maddison
    Kane, Richarlison

    Foster, KDH, Holgate, Dennis

    1. aleksios
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      I think not.

    2. T0RR3S
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Not really

  12. T0RR3S
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 28 days ago

    Thoughts on this one:

    Schmeichel
    Trent | James | Cancelo | Laporte
    Son | Mount | Maddison | Zaha
    Toney | Richarlison

    Foster | Gordon | Watkins | Holgate

    Already on a -4, should i take another hit to take out Watkins for another forward?
    Thanks

    1. Ëð
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Not worth it, G2G

    3 x Spurs
    2 x Liverpool
    2 x Man City
    2 x Chelsea

  16. Kryptonite666
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 28 days ago

    I have a 19 point lead. My opponent has Kane and Mount. I know she will captain Kane in an attempt to catch up

    Would you do

    KDB + Richarlison + Jota to Mount + Kane (c) + Maddison for -8 ? (have Son (c) otherwise)

    Will substantially reduce her chances to making up the lead. My lead will reduce to 15 points (my view is she will take a hit as she has Salah, Weg and Coutinho.

    1. aleksios
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      For sure.

    2. Baps hunter
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Can she do Salah to C Son? Doesn't really matter supposing you have Son now though. However, even in that case she would be very close to you unless you have very similar teams.

      1. Kryptonite666
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        I think she can, but obviously she knows I have Son and he is the clear captain choice so she will want to differentiate to catch up (hope she is not on this forum lol)

  17. Jones Kusi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 28 days ago

    Toney or James?

    1. T0RR3S
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Both actually

      1. Jones Kusi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        Great answer

    2. Stimps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Toney, James possible rotation

      1. T0RR3S
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        But with great upside!

  18. Ajax Hamsterdam
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 28 days ago

    maybe my last question this season 🙂

    a play pukki
    b bench pukki, play 352 and do d hall to maddison for -4
    c bench pukki, play 352 and do d hall to barnes for -4

    thank you and gl !

    1. ZimZalabim
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      C as im looking the same move

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        cheers 🙂

    2. T0RR3S
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      It's a preference i guess
      I prefer Mads

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        thanks

  19. ZimZalabim
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 28 days ago

    IF I keep Salah, think id get Barnes in for Gordon but would need a hit to fund it

    so which one ?

    A. Laporte to 4.3 def (sess probably)
    B. Pukki to 4.4 fodder

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      a like a. bench pukki first on bench just in case 🙂

      1. ZimZalabim
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        cheers with dennis on my bench and cancelo starting i was leaning that way as well

        there will be some rotation for sure so dont want to have only 1 playing sub.

    2. T0RR3S
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Assuming the other option will be your first sub.
      I prefer to have Laporte as my first sub then

  20. Mr_Nanny
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Is it worth keeping Sterling? thinking of swapping to Mount?!

      1. Rantallion
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        I think Mount is the better option

        1. StellaMan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 28 days ago

          Mount for sure

          1. Mr_Nanny
              2 months, 28 days ago

              Yeah I think so too, I'm not actually sold on a Man City walkover, could be a nervy affair and not even sure Sterling will get majority of minutes, this move gives me money to upgrade elsewhere too

              Thanks

      2. Rantallion
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        Who would you bench out of Laporte & Nketiah?

        I’ve got Cancelo in the first XI.

        1. Mr_Nanny
            2 months, 28 days ago

            Probably Nketiah Everton still probably hungover, will Lacazette get a final send off/appearance though?

        2. Clueless_91
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 28 days ago

          Hows this 11 look on a FH?

          Alison
          TAA James Cancelo Sessegnon
          Foden Son Diaz Madison Mount
          Kane

          1. Rantallion
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 28 days ago

            It’s great, got all bases covered

        3. jay01
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 28 days ago

          If 10 points behind rival, would you do:

          1) Salah to Mane for free
          2) Salah, Pukki to Kane and Barnes (-4)

          1. Rantallion
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 28 days ago

            1, I’d be tempted to captain Mane if I was chasing.

            1. jay01
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 28 days ago

              I am tempted.. he will probs get in Son and captain.. but i feel like mane alone might be a differential itself than it go to Son vs Mane

          2. FPL_ UP_Down
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 28 days ago

            2 could be really good but big IF
            Barnes Starts!

            1. jay01
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 28 days ago

              Agree but now the doubt with kane has me doubting

        4. Viper
          • 12 Years
          2 months, 28 days ago

          What looks like a better upgrade?

          A. Pukki -> Kane

          B. Martinelli -> Mané

            No then kane.
            Yes then mane.

                I've got Havertz but worried Lukaku might get a farewell to the fans appearance, he should be off to new pastures next season right?

                  Not sure Lukaku would play for that reason. Fans indifferent or negative to him after a poor season, punctuated by appearing overweight and moaning about Tuchel. With Werner presumably out, and Pulisic underwhelming performances, he however still might play.

            Last roll of the FH roulette wheel, who scores more:

            Fabianski / TTA / Bowen

            Or

            Raya / Burn / Mane

            A) Davies to James -4
            B) something else
            C) gtg

            Schmeichel
            Taa - son - Cancelo - alonso - Davies
            Son - mount - kulu - kdb
            Richarlison
            Pukkk - elanga - dennis

            Pope
            Trent • Robertson • Cancelo • Laporte
            Salah • Son • Foden • Saka
            Toney • Pukki
            (Foster / Martinelli / White / 4.5)

            Salah -> Mane the obvious move? Any other ideas? Also cap Son or Mane and start Pukki or Martinelli. 12 pts ahead of top 1k so want to play safe

              Given the choice would you rather Mane or Mount?

                Mane

                    Yeah I like that also, ideally want both but think I'll go Mane

                    Cheers

                Richarlison & Coutinho > Toney & Mount -4?
