FFS Mini-Leagues & Community Competitions – Gameweek 8

Welcome to the Fantasy Football Scout mini-leagues and community competitions roundup after Gameweek 8.

Although no matches were played in Gameweek 7, transfers were made, hits were taken, teams were added and reinstated, and red and green arrows resulted. No teams were eliminated from Last Man Standing and the lead did not change hands in any of our featured mini-leagues, so the only significant changes were in our FFS Head-to-Head Leagues, where there were now only 11 managers on maximum points (21 out of 21) – three in League 8 and eight in League 9.

The rest of this article relates to Gameweek 8. As well as the featured mini-leagues, we also report the latest news about Last Man Standing and the Head-to-Head Leagues. Strikers Keepers Losers Weepers is covered by a separate series of articles.
