Mini Leagues & Community Competitions – Gameweek 31

Welcome to the Fantasy Football Scout mini-leagues and community competitions round-up after GW31, a rather underwhelming minor Double Gameweek.

We report on the two main FFScout Leagues, our new world number one, the recent Live Hall of Fame update and the chip strategy favored by seven of its top ten, the Mods & Cons and FFS Family mini-leagues, Last Man Standing, the FFS Members Cup, the Head-to-Head Leagues and a selection of other community mini-leagues.

FFSCOUT OPEN-TO-ALL LEAGUE

Srecko Kurtovic tops the Fantasy Football Scout mini-league (league code gsnskx) for a 23rd week and is now 11th overall.

FFSCOUT COMMUNITY MEMBERS LEAGUE

Håkon Mangersnes has regained the lead from Joacim Lengroth in the Fantasy Football Scout members mini-league, having previously led after Gameweeks 28 and 29. This League is also open to all, and the league code is visible in the widget on the FFS Home Page when signed in – but only those with a registered FFS account (paid or free) will be eligible for prizes.

Fantasy Football Scout Members is now the third best league in FPL, based on the average scores of the top five teams in each league. Our own top five are all in the overall top fifty.

WORLD NUMBER ONE

Håkon, who was recently interviewed by Neale (Skonto Rigga), is now.number one in the world. He has been in the overall top twenty since Gameweek 23 and is 609th in our recently updated FFS Live Hall of Fame. His previous best finish was 2,413th in 2019/20.

FFS LIVE HALL OF FAME UPDATE

The FFS Live Hall of Fame was updated again in the international break between Gameweeks 30 and 31, as reported in my comment here that listed the new top ten together with their positions in the FFS Career Hall of Fame and the overall ranks of the six that were in the overall top thousand at the time.

A few days later, this article looked at the squad template and chip strategies of these ten, many of which were remarkably similar.

I was surprised that only three of them (Fábio Borges, Brusdal Brusdal and Robert Wattel) triple captained Mo Salah against Norwich and Leeds for 28*3 points in Double Gameweek 26. The other seven played their Second Wildcards then in preparation for Bench Boosting in Gameweek 28 and didn’t triple captain him till Double Gameweek 29 against Brighton and Arsenal for only 10*3 points. Most of the leaders of our featured mini-leagues however DID triple captain him in Gameweek 26. See the Hot Topic that will be attached to this article for further details.

MODS & CONS

Chaz Phillips (Az) tops the FFS Mods & Cons mini-league for an 18th week. He is now 685th overall, and 128th in our FFS Live Hall of Fame.

FFS FAMILY

Obay Eid (FPL_Milanista) tops the FFS Family mini-league for a 28th week. He has risen to 34th overall and is 12th in our FFS Live Hall of Fame.

The safety score for Gameweek 30 in TorresMagic’s Last Man Standing competition (see https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/26234/standings/c and https://torresmagic.webs.com/lmsupdate.htm) was 44, with 46 teams to be removed and 132 going through to Gameweek 32.

The highest scorer was Sean C with 69, thanks to double digit hauls from Richarlison and Doherty.

FFS MEMBERS CUP

Gameweek 30 was the first round of the latest FFS Members Cup. The two previous winners had mixed results – Mohd Rodzi is through to round 2, but Scrumper was eliminated by Cheese pizza.

AJ is still the highest ranked manager (322nd), but the best score of the round was Wolves42 with 86 thanks to double digit hauls from Richarlison, Bowen, Cornet and Son.

HEAD-TO-HEAD LEAGUES

Justin Spiegel still leads Martin Stubbs by two points at the top of League 1 of MIR’s FFS Head-to-Head Leagues. He is 238th in our FFS Live Hall of Fame.
