    Rough with the Smooth, Gameweek 16.

    How did your Gameweek go?

    You can share your tales of joy and woe here.

      Rough:
      Sold Foden (9) for Maddison (6).
      I suspected that he would probably start if Haaland also started, but there was still a possibility that Haaland might not start either. I would have kept him if I had known he was going to start, but I didn't want to risk him being benched again or the system going down again after a late leak.
      Still outside the top million.

      Smooth:
      I did get a small green arrow.
      And I have a fairly healthy TV, so I should be able to afford a dream first eleven and strong bench after the Unlimited Transfers.

      Second green on the spin and up to 430k. Having been at 6.2m after GW1 I’m more than happy! GW2 early wildcard paid off!

      Smooth; Ward, wow put him in GW12 and sold Sanchez when Brighton had Liverpool. He’s been superb! Foden came in at last. Trippier, Saliba and Martinelli all chipping in. 48 points.

      Rough; Haaland(cap). Salah blank. So the captaincy made no odds really. Brought Martial in for Mitrovic as I couldn’t get to Darwin. My daughter got him in to her delight!

      Took In Kane and captained
      Swapped rashford for Almiron
      Green arrow 66 points

        Kane (C) was a good call and pretty ballsy. Well played.

    4. TM44
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Smooth: 54 points and a small green arrow to just inside the top 100k.

      Rough: captain haaland and cancelo 3 points between them. Bailey not starting and getting zero points. Salah blanking.

    5. Botman and Robben
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Rough: Ward bit me again and went with Guaita. Zaha did his usual Zaha tings.
      Smooth: Green arrow after 4 straight reds gives me a 106k OR which is OK at this point.

      Looking forward to the WC!!!

    6. Mozumbus

      Rough:
      Ward on the bench
      Shipped out Trippier on WC 4 ago to enable Iversen to Pickford which bites in this GW as well from both sides since Cresswell was the replacement
      Would not really complain about the blanks by Haaland, Salah, Saka, and Cancelo

      Smooth:
      Got Nunez using 2 FTs
      Kept faith with Foden
      Solanke, Martinelli, Saliba returned
      Green arrow, OR is still in bad shape

    7. circusmonkey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Smooth: got in Odegaard and Darwin with my 2 free transfers (which I had because of the server crash that stopped me making a dud move).

    8. Better off with a pin and a…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Smooth: Didn't panic Haaland back in. Kane returned nicely again, kept Foden for his return. Small green arrow.
      Rough: Ward on the bench AGAIN (played Guaita, which was probably sensible, but a 9-point swing FFS!). Zaha missed the pen, didn't do Wilson->Nunez for -4 as I considered. Still stuck below 2M and just can't climb.

    9. Patio Kev
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Rough - Zaha nil points plus only 5 points Cancelo, Salah and Erling.

      Smooth - 80 points after bringing in Darwin (C), Southampton are always an obvious defence to target.

    10. DARE TO BISCAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Rough: Captained Haaland, Ward on the bench

      Smooth: Everyone else capped him too, 66 points, green arrow and pushing for top 100k

    11. The Wayfarer
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Smooth: One-week Nunez gamble paid off, sold Toney so avoided his points being stuck on my bench, Foden, Kane, Ward, 63 points and a nice green arrow.

      Rough: Zaha missing that penalty. Rashford blank.

    12. 2999 - Lady of Legend
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Smooth: brought in Kane & Summerville.

      Rough: benched Summerville and he didn't come on.

      Smooth: Arsenal still top and will be for some time, hope the WC break acts as a help and not hindrance!

    Who are the best 4 premium players for the world cup fantasy?

    1. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      I'm focussing largely on premium or at least very attacking defenders (some of them actually bargains like Mæhle). Only have 3 mid/fwd premiums at the moment - Sané, Messi, Mbappé

      1. Mozumbus
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Thanks
        Maehle is great value
        Somehow I managed 5 premiums
        Messi Mbappe Sane KDB and Vinicius J
        Surely I'm making mistakes elsewhere

    2. Paul Psychic Octopus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      As he alludes to, depends on the fixtures.

      Depay against Qatar will probably score more than Mbappe vs. Denmark.

      1. Mozumbus
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Thanks
        We get 2 FTs every matchday in the group stage
        Depay will play Qatar on the third matchday

      2. bobinjo
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Depay is injured.
        Not playing first game.
        Van Gaal confirmed it.

    3. Ask Yourself
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      KDB, Messi, Neymar and Mbappe

      1. Mozumbus
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Thanks
        Got Vinicius J without much thoughts, now moved to Neymar

    4. lugs
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      all the best premiums are forwards and defenders, midfield is a bit of a wasteland because they were so lazy assigning positions, Saka is still a mid but Raphina and Vini jr are forwards thus making them almost a no go when Neymar is the clear pick for Brazil up front

      1. Mozumbus
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Thanks
        KDB and Sane come to mind in the midfield
        Would you go for them?

        1. lugs
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          yeah KDB seems the stand out mid option, not sure on Sane though, 7 games played this year for Germany but no goals, 5 from 15 last year though

      2. Clay Davis
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 13 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Disagree - forwards and mids both score 5pts per goal so position classification isn't that much different.

        The difference being...

        Forwards get +1pt every 2 shots on target.

        Midfielders get +1pt every 2 key passes, +1pt every 3 tackles, +1pts for a cleansheet 60 mins or more.

  4. Jässi
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    How's she looking for FPL after world cup (0.0 ITB)?

    Sanchez - Ward
    Cancelo - Trippier - Robertson - Amartey - Bueno/any other 3.9 def
    Salah - Martinelli - Trossard - Almiron - Andreas
    Haaland - Darwin - Toney

    1. Karan14

      Come back after 40 days mate

      1. Baps hunter

        • 6 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Normally good advice, but for example I broke up with my girlfriend and soon after that I broke my knee (patella). Since fpl is on a break and many things are broken, I don't think it's a bad idea to create bus team now, many nuances may be forgotten during WC.

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Compare to mine (which I naturally prefer):

      Ward / Kepa

      Trippier, Schärr, Castagne, White, Bueno
      KdB, Foden, Martinelli, Almiron, Andreas
      Haaland, Kane, Darwin

      1. Better off with a pin and a…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Wow - can you afford that? I'd be 1.7M short! I like the forward 3 very much - that's what I was thinking of having. Possibly with Saka and Maddison over KDB and Foden and I fancy a Villa defender - maybe Digne. Anyway, lots of planning to do before a proper draft...

      Why is it always a “she”? 😎

    The problem with world cup fantasy is that it is over complicated. Winning it massively involves fixture rotation planning and being there to make captaincy changes, rather than just picking the right players and committing to a captain.

    It is a complete turn off.

    1. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Feels like less rotation planning than FPL to me. In a way, its a lot simpler: just have to choose your group stage fixtures to attack & think of it more like 2 FHs for the first 3 matchdays

      1. Mozumbus
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Yes have been playing world cup fantasy since long
        It's a lot simpler
        Different formats, so one has to really come out of FPL especially when it's too indulging
        FPL to world cup is to what test match is to T20 in cricket (hope I picked analogy order correctly lol)

    2. Clay Davis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Everyone to their own. Personal I prefer a game that requires more engagement.

  6. Radzio
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    When can we expect Sunday's matches to be added to Members Area?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 14 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      It's still being worked on.

  7. WALOR
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 14 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Am I foolish to go with Lautaro Martinez over Messi?
    In WC qualifyers,
    10.5 m Messi had 16 appearances, 7 goals, 0 assists, 59 Shots, 16 Shots on Target
    8.0 m Lautaro had 15 appearances, 7 goals, 3 assists, 36 Shots, 16 Shots on Target
    That's a lot of cash for similar results - what am I missing?

    1. Mozumbus
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      It's too much a gamble keeping in view Messi ownership

    2. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Plus 11 goals in 2 and a half friendlies for Messi. I'm going with both initially

    3. GreennRed
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      You're comparing club form and goalscoring opportunities rather than Argentina form and opportunities.

    4. Ask Yourself
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      I think the takeaway here should be to have both

      1. WALOR
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 14 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Cheers all!
        With Depay not starting, having both is an easier call.

    Are we having a league of ffs members in the world cup fantasy?
    Code?

    1. lugs
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      there is one, go over to where it says scout leagues, then click on fifa World Cup Fantasy, the link will bring you to the Fifa site where you can join the league

      1. Mozumbus
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Thanks
        Will try doing this way

      2. Mozumbus
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Is that for paid members only?
        Couldn't find it

        1. lugs
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          its there, don't know if you're using mobile or browser, but its the same place as where you find the FPL league code, on browser its under where the captain poll is, not sure where on mobile but its probably under some drop down menu

          1. Mozumbus
            • 2 Years
            1 year, 5 months ago

            Thanks again
            Will retry
            I'm using mobile

  9. Mozumbus
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Cancelo or Dumfries?
    Reasons?

    1. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Dumfries just got injured apparently so that makes it easy. Not sure of timeline for return

      1. Mozumbus
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Oh! That's sad
        Hope he gets well soon

    2. Ask Yourself
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      I’d want both ideally. If Dumfries out it’s a p straight swap for frimpong who is also super threatening

      1. Mozumbus
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Helpful
        Thanks a bunch

      2. The Mentaculus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Frimpong looks a really enticing replacement. Thanks for the suggestion

    3. Clay Davis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Both!

    World Cup draft - 0.5ITB

      • 2 Years

      We're still trying to figure out if you can move captaincy every day or every match, but you can definitely move it so try to plan a chain - e.g. Shaw - Messi - KDB - Cancelo

      1. Mozumbus
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        You can move captaincy before the daily deadline to a player who has not played yet

        1. The Mentaculus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          Once per day? Yeah that is what I thought (and how I've planned) but then I couldn't actually find it in the rules just now

          1. Mozumbus
            • 2 Years
            1 year, 5 months ago

            Let me find it out
            Have been playing since long so know these nitty gritties

          2. Mozumbus
            • 2 Years
            1 year, 5 months ago

            After reading the rule, I'm confused now lol
            Can live with the confusion though

          3. Siva Mohan
            • 11 Years
            1 year, 5 months ago

            Matchday 1 - 16 games

            captain can be changed to the player unlimited amount of times who hasn't played yet
            player can be subbed to a bench player unlimited amount of times who hasn't played yet

        2. GreennRed
          • 12 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          You can change captain after every game:

          'You can change your captain an unlimited amount of times, as long as the new selected captain is yet to play in the current matchday.

          Once your captain has played in the matchday, you are able to change your captain once more for another player who is yet to play. If you choose to change your previous captain, you will lose their double points and your new captain will score double instead.'

          1. Mozumbus
            • 2 Years
            1 year, 5 months ago

            Yes, just read that, and your interpretation makes more sense

            1. GreennRed
              • 12 Years
              1 year, 5 months ago

              It's fairly ambiguous though so I'm not sure in any way.. For some reason I can't remember much about the game in 2018 but in 2014 could change captains and make subs between games. It was a pain in the a$$!

              1. Mozumbus
                • 2 Years
                1 year, 5 months ago

                Somehow I remember it was once a day, but looks like my memory started misguiding me lol

    2. sirmorbach

      Telles will not be Tite's first option, mate. He plays Alex Sandro.

    Going to give myself a winter break by not playing WC fantasy.

    1. Sharkytect
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Same here. Gonna just enjoy the world cup

    2. Sad Ken
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Same, no way can I be bothered playing another game on top of FPL.

      1. Make United Great Again
        • 11 Years

        I don’t know how people have the time.

    3. Philosopher's Stones
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Playing another fantasy game on top of FPL is like having an annoying wife, and to escape whom you start an affair, who turns out to be just as annoying as your wife. It's a headache I'll give a pass.

    4. DARE TO BISCAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Same. Not really fussed about the world cup. Definitely not with how it is this time

  12. The Wayfarer
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    At this checkpoint in the season, what do you consider to be your best and worst transfers to date?

    Best: Trippier ahead of GW6 for Robertson. Got on Trippier a little before the masses and haven't looked back. He's got me 4 assists, 7 clean sheets, and 15 bonus points. Even captained him for 18 points in that tricky GW12.

    Worst: There are a few contenders here. Going to have to say Foden for the impact it had on my team. Brought him in for GW13 which saw him benched 3 games in a row (rank fell from 247,000 to 816,000 in those weeks). Redeemed himself somewhat in GW16.

    1. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Best: mainly just starting Haaland, Trippier, Martinelli (and Darwin, despite the RC hassle...). Since then I haven't made any killer moves except maybe Almiron 3 GWs back.

      Worst: undoubtedly KDB - Foden across the blank, with a special mention for Zaha

    2. Fellaini's Fro
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Best: Maddison in for gw9 until his suspension. 3 weeks, 21 points, 0.2m cashed out

      Worst: sterling in gw5, out GW13. Just 16 points from him over that period and tied up a lot of cash.

  13. sirmorbach
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Saka a good option for the World Cup Fantasy?

    1. Siva Mohan
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      ENG defender/goalie for GW1 .. don't trust Southgate attackers in 3-4-3 format

      1. Ask Yourself
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Even then I’m only going trippier. Not that I’m not confident but I have no idea where the points will come from in that team

    2. Ask Yourself
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Modric/Eriksen probably slightly better shouts due to pens and how midfielders can get points for key passes and that

  14. Nate(U)dog(ie)
    • 3 Years

    Did not realise Odegaard is now Arsenal's top scorer, and only Jesus and Saka have more goal involvements than him. Think I've gone off the idea of keeping Saka but will be interesting to see if many are tempted by moving Martinelli to him over this period. I assume most won't given they'll have a fair bit of value built up in Martinelli, but for those that haven't (like myself) it's something to think about

      I think I'd have him over Saka. Issue is, Martinelli, Saliba, White seem too good value to me. White would be the to drop out for him. But, then there's all the other mids I want.

        I moved Saliba to White before his rise, had Saliba since GW1 but think White is the better pick now, he's looked better and better as the weeks have gone on. I actually was thinking of going from triple Arsenal to just one mid initially, some tricky ties early on like Spurs, Newcastle and ManUtd and i don't think I see lots of goals in a lot of those early fixtures. Defensively they're still performing really well so I'll certainly keep White but I can see myself benching him a fair few times

      Probably Martinelli and Odegaard (to replace Saka as no World Cup for him) for me in a 3-5-2

      Hadn't clocked that either. I'm pretty sure I'll stick with Martinelli as some of the upcoming fixtures (bha NEW tot MUN) might favour him tactically. Have a feeling Odegaard is more effective against the bottom teams who sit deeper but will check up on that comparison sometime

        Interesting, will have to look into that myself

    Help me understand this guys:
    "The Wildcard chip can be used twice a season. The first wildcard will be available from the start of the season until Sat 12 Nov 12:00"

    Well, I forgot. On the transfer page I have this message:
    "You can make unlimited free transfers before the Gameweek 17 deadline"

    I think I should have lost the WC, but instead it just got automatically activated now. Am I missing something?

      We all have unlimited FTs during the World Cup. Your 1st wildcard is void now

        Thanks! Thought they were giving a hand out to casuals.

          Not knowing the rules is a casuals move 😎

    2. The Wayfarer

      You lost the WC. Until the next GW, we all have unlimited free transfers.

    3. The Polymath

      Yep, you've lost the first WC, you'll get a new one on boxing day. In the meantime you can do free unlimited transfers, but the more you do the lower your rank will become compared to people with the same points as you.

    4. Wild Rover
      • 13 Years

      It's not a WC. Everyone gets unlimited transfers until GW17 deadline. If you haven't already played your 1st WC, you have lost it.

      1st WC before GW16
      2nd WC between GW16 - GW17 (World Cup break period)
      3rd WC after GW17

      Yes.

    Mboop or Kane for WC Fantasy? Other 2 are Messi and Neymar.

    Didn't really watch England play. How is NT Kane compared to Spurs Kane?

    Also afraid of all French drama, too much strikers upfront, 0 creativity in middle and Mbappe is not on pens for NT unless Deschamp is forced by Qatar emperor to give him that too.

    With 12th man chip seems reasonable to have Kane in team and play 12th man Mbappe which has tough MD2 plus I wont C him when he play same day as Messi against Saudi.

    Input appreciated, thx.

    1. Jonesfromthere

      Sound logic, I agree with Kane with Mbappe as 12 man

    Hello gents.
    How does one go about activating 12th man and if you use it can it be cancelled before the 1st game starts.

      Can't find a button for chips yet either. Maybe due a big update when final player list is ready?

      1. Eze Really?
        • 9 Years

        Cheers. Thinking of using 12th man MD1

          Likewise. Best fixtures to attack in MDs 1 & 3 I think, and will WC in 3.

      Don’t overwhelm them. They’re still learning the lines to Glory, Glory Man Utd.

    Very quick first draft with a plan to attack weeks 1&2 then wildcard:

    Armani / Pope
    Dumfries / Trippier / Maehle / Sosa / Schar
    Di Maria / Eriksen / Shaqiri / Bergwijn / Plata
    Kane / Messi / Neymar

    1.0 in bank, will probably upgrade GKs and Schar/Sosa before the deadline

    1. sirmorbach
      • 7 Years

      I think neither one of your keepers start, so it's a good use of your money itb indeed.

        I know, I want the Argentina keeper whoever it is, but Armani is the only in their player list currently. Pope is pretty much a placeholder right now, trying to figure out who the best 4.0 is

        1. GreennRed
          • 12 Years

          Rochet. Uruguay keeper.

          1. GreennRed
            • 12 Years
            1 year, 5 months ago

            Was gonna get Emi Martinez but prob get Rochet now and frees up a nice few quid.

    First WC draft. Any thoughts welcome.

    Alisson / Rochet
    Dumfries (or VVD) / Trippier / Davies / Maehle / Sosa
    KDB / Eriksen / Kimmich / Zielínski / Kamada
    Messi / Neymar / Gakpo

      Seen much of Gakpo? I'm tempted by him but not too sure, may leave him/Depay for MD2 transfer in.

      Keepers play the same day but that's actually fine isnt it? Subs anytime also, not daily? Think that was just a mistaken assumption on my part maybe.

      1. sirmorbach
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Hmmm. It's actually a very good point. I might downgrade Alisson eventually if it comes to having to play different-day players.

        Gakpo: eye test telling me he's amazing!

          I'm not too keen on premium keepers really. Feel like I can get away with 2x 4.5 GKs playing the fixtures in this format

          1. sirmorbach
            • 7 Years
            1 year, 5 months ago

            Might go down that route myself!

    2. Ask Yourself
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      I think you can do better than Bavies but other than that I like it. I don’t find Kimmich a super attractive pick but should be good for tackles and key passes

      1. sirmorbach
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        It's Alphonso! Tough group, but he plays upfront, and I think Canada could score against Belgium. Many thanks!

    Fairly up-to-date. Sorted by groups. Can search on player names.

    Can I play a Booster anytime during a running Matchday (MD)? or, do I need to confirm it before the MD deadline (first match of the MD) as in fantasy UCL? Rules section in Fifa site does not specify it clearly.
