Chips and transfer strategies to navigate the FPL Blank and Double Gameweeks

Fantasy Premier League managers should start formulating a plan in their minds for the upcoming Blank and Double Gameweeks.

These provide an excellent opportunity to make up lost ground or press home a mini-league or overall ranking advantage.

The best way to make the most of these altered Gameweeks is through the use of the FPL chips.

After discussing when the Blank and Double Gameweeks could fall earlier this week, we will discuss the best transfer and chip strategies in this article.

Using Chips to Navigate the Blank and Double Gameweeks

FPL managers may have to rethink an often-used chip tactic from previous seasons this time around.

It has been popular in previous campaigns to Wildcard in a single Gameweek between the Blanks caused by the FA Cup quarter-finals and the first big Double Gameweek. Then after that, use the Bench and Triple Captain chips in two big Double Gameweeks and Free Hit in the Blank Gameweek caused by the FA Cup semi-finals.

However, that strategy will not be possible this season as there won’t be a single Gameweek in which you can Wildcard between the Blanks caused by the FA Cup quarter-finals and the first big Double Gameweek, as these fall in Gameweek 31 and 32 respectively.

Gameweek 31 is likely to be the biggest Blank Gameweek of the season and many FPL managers will use their Free Hit then if they haven’t prepared for it. You’ll have plenty of time to come up with a plan to use your free transfers to prepare for Gameweek 31 and the Free Hit chip may be more useful in the subsequent Gameweeks.

Free Hitting in Double Gameweek 32 would allow you to focus on preparing for the Blanks in Gameweeks 31 and 33. This strategy will work particularly well if you were then to Wildcard in Gameweek 34 to set your team up to play your Bench Boost chip in Double Gameweek 35.

Free Hitting in Blank Gameweek 33 would allow you to focus on preparing your team for the Doubles in Gameweek 32 and 35. This strategy will work better if you can Wildcard in Double Gameweek 32 to get rid of your players who have just played in Gameweek 31 and replace them with players who will have at least one Double Gameweek.

Neither of these Free Hit strategies involves playing your Triple Captain chip in either of the two big Double Gameweeks. You would either Free Hit or Wildcard in Double Gameweek 32 and then Bench Boost in Double Gameweek 35.

That leaves the potential “extra” Double Gameweek as a perfect opportunity to play your Triple Captain chip if one team ends up with three fixture rearrangements this season.

I think an extra Double Gameweek (outside of Gameweek 32 or Gameweek 35) seems likely enough that it’s worth holding on to your Triple Captain chip for.

There have been at least three separate Double Gameweeks in each of the last nine seasons. There will be a third Double Gameweek this season if a team ticks at least three of these boxes:

  • They or their Gameweek 27 opponent reach the Carabao Cup final
  • They or their Gameweek 31 opponent reach the FA Cup quarter-finals
  • They or their Gameweeks 33 opponent reach the FA Cup semi-finals
  • They have a game postponed (and moved to another Gameweek) for another reason such as bad weather or traffic problems etc.

There will also be a third Double Gameweek if a Gameweek 27 Blank is brought forward to Gameweek 25 or 26.

All the Blanks fixtures will be confirmed by March 17th, which is a day after the Gameweek 31 deadline. The Double Gameweek 32 fixtures will be announced between February 19th and March 19th.

It makes sense to prepare for the Blanks in Gameweeks 27 and 31 using free transfers and then decide on a chip strategy during the international break after Gameweek 31. At that point, the Blank and Double Gameweek picture will be a lot clearer.

Trying to navigate this stretch of the season without the use of a Free Hit chip and your Wildcard will be difficult. Transfers that you make to prepare for a Blank Gameweek could directly lead to you having fewer players with two fixtures in a subsequent Double Gameweek and conversely, transfers that you make to prepare for a Double Gameweek could directly lead to you having fewer players with a fixture in a subsequent Blank Gameweek.

Remember, the teams who reach the FA Cup semi-finals won’t have a Premier League fixture in either Gameweek 31 or 33 and are very likely to play twice in both Gameweek 32 and 35. The teams who have a fixture in Gameweek 31 are unlikely to play twice in Gameweek 32 and the teams who have a fixture in Gameweek 33 are unlikely to play twice in Gameweek 35.

If you have already used your Wildcard, it still makes sense to Free Hit in Double Gameweek 32 or in Blank Gameweek 33 but another option might be to focus on bringing in players who Blank in Gameweek 31, then Free Hit in that Gameweek and you’ll be well set up for the Doubles in Gameweeks 32 and 35.

Using Free Transfers to Prepare for the Blank Gameweeks

Bringing in players who won’t Blank in either Gameweek 31 or 33 will give you more flexibility when you come to chose a chip strategy for dealing with Gameweeks 32 to 35.

Liverpool are currently the only team who we know definitely won’t Blank in either of these Gameweeks, but more teams will be added to this list after each round of the FA Cup.

Liverpool’s fixtures between now and Gameweek 31 are Crystal Palace (home), Leicester (home), West Ham (away), Bournemouth (home), Manchester United (away), Watford (home), Everton (away), Burnley (home) and Fulham (away). They then play Southampton away in Gameweek 33. Meanwhile, the other top six Premier Leagues sides will likely only have somewhere between seven to nine fixtures in those 10 Gameweeks.

Tripling up on Liverpool players by Gameweek 31 is an obvious move and bringing them in well in advance of Gameweek 31 makes sense given their upcoming fixtures.

Mohamed Salah (£13.4m) is the highest scoring player in the game and with five double-digit scores in his last seven Gameweeks, he’s fully justifying his price tag. He will certainly be one of the most popular captains of the season when Liverpool travel to Craven Cottage in Gameweek 31.

The question is whether you opt to double up on Liverpool’s defensive assets with Salah or just pick one of Liverpool’s back five and double up on their attack with Salah. He could be paired with either Sadio Mane (£9.5m), Roberto Firmino (£9.3m) or even Xherdan Shaqiri (£7.1m) who’s scored five goals in his last ten appearances and tends to only be benched against tougher opposition.

Liverpool players are obviously worth bringing in now, but other than that there’s no need to let the upcoming Blanks affect your transfer decisions this week.

We’ll receive more information about all the Blank Gameweeks in the week leading up to the Gameweek 24 deadline. You might want to use your free transfers between Gameweeks 24 and 27 to make sure you can get an active starting XI in Blank Gameweek 27 whilst also keeping an eye on how your team is looking for Gameweek 31.

Gameweek 26 would be a good time to save a free transfer as the Gameweek 31 Blanks will all be confirmed four or five days before the Gameweek 27 deadline. That will give you six free transfers before Gameweek 31 with full knowledge of which teams will Blank.

Spurs’ fixtures between Gameweeks 23 and 26 are very favourable with Fulham (away), Watford (home), Newcastle (home) and Leicester (home) their opponents. But after that, it has the potential to be less appealing. If they beat Chelsea in the EFL Cup semi-final second leg and win their FA Cup fourth-round tie their schedule would be Blank, Chelsea (away), Arsenal (home), Southampton (away), Blank. Accordingly, Gameweek 27 could be a sensible time to sell your Spurs players.

If Burnley lose away to Man City in the FA Cup next Saturday, Leicester will be added to the list of teams who won’t have a Blank fixture this season. The Foxes have tough fixtures in the next four Gameweeks but in Gameweeks 27 to 31 they would face Crystal Palace (home), Brighton (home), Watford (away), Fulham (home) followed by Burnley (away) if the Clarets get knocked out of the cup. They will host Huddersfield in Blank Gameweek 33 so Gameweek 27 seems like it will be a good time to start bringing in Leicester players. Ricardo Pereira (£5.3) looks like their best Fantasy asset and has received plenty of attention on the site in recent weeks.

If you are one of the FPL managers who activated your Wildcard this week after hearing about Harry Kane (£12.5m) and Trent Alexander-Arnold’s (£5.2m) injuries, you should be aware that Everton and Man City plus either Spurs and Burnley or Chelsea and Brighton will Blank in Gameweek 27 and you’ll only have four free transfers to prepare for it.

You may be in the unfortunate position of not having your Free Hit chip or your second Wildcard available but it’s still important to come up with a plan for how you’ll approach the Blank and Double Gameweeks, and be prepared to take hits.

      Not really.

    Looks like I'm keeping TAA then. And not taking a hit. ML leader took a -8 overnight. No doubt selling TAA...

      • 2 Years
      10 months, 29 days ago

      no but IF both strikers start then someone gotta give, but who knows? Sané could be played as LWB, or as part of the three up front, Sterling could be played as RWB, The only certain thing is that Fernandinho plays and one or two of Bilva/Silva or KDB plays alongside him. He could play Bilva as RWB. It has over the latest period looked liked Sterling and Sané is pretty nailed but the return of KDB and form of Jesus (should it be reverse that one-?) means there is further possibilites for Pep, in that he can play one of his troika Bilva/Silva/KDB in a more advanced position and thus one of Sterling/Sane misses out. It´s a nightmare and that´s why i reluctantly consider Auba and not Kun (with Punch as fifth mid), or a more balanced Pogba/Mitro but which gives me more decisions to make but in the case of Kun less nervous breakdowns. My gut tells me Kun starts this one but the uncertainty long term makes me hesitate.

    Play one

    A) Patricio LEI
    B) Fabianski bou

    1. COLLIN QUANER

    2. Leo10

      Patricio. Better chance of a clean sheet

    3. Runaway
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 29 days ago

      I would play A because of a little more chance of CS but I genuinely believe both will concede and Fabianski will save more at the end.

    Klopp on Robbo: "I've improved my Scottish with him a little bit. Not with Kenny Dalglish though, not sure what language he is speaking!" what a great guy Klopp is - does everyone agree?

    To be honest ot wasnt officially confirmed by liverpool that he would be out for weeks, so I have no sympathy for people who transferred him out. This is why you wait for the pressers

    1. Leo10
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 29 days ago

      Waiting for official news is what the FPL site should be doing too.

    2. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 29 days ago

      Official news tells you very little unless you can read the mind of the managers. Still think Klopp is lying about TAA to hide the news of how long he is out for. The title race being close and Liverpool not ever winning the PL has made him cagey IMO.

      Very much like how Howe is with Wilson and Hodgson on Zaha.

    3. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      fair point but why the FPL flag out for a month beforehand?

    4. Runaway
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 29 days ago

      both true. FPL should have waited, at least they could have put yellow flag until official statement but owners should have waited as well. There are some people brought him in for -4 and sold for another -4, frustrating.

  10. Smurf
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years

    Lose Sane for Hazard on WC after hearing the Mendy news? Would leave me with no City. Or would Sterling be a better bet than Haz?

  11. HAMMERTIME107

    Now we've got the arnie news is it worth Chicharito as a punt against Bournemouth ?

    1. SkekTek (AKA: AnzhiBabakin)
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 29 days ago

      If you can afford a 1-2 week punt it could work. But Ings would be better in that bracket possibly.

      1. HAMMERTIME107

        Bloody hell. What's the Arnie news?

        1. HAMMERTIME107
          • 1 Year
          10 months, 29 days ago

          Not in the team at all, pretty much certain to leave! Chicharito fit to play!

  12. TONY123

    Lamela or Alli as a WC punt?

    1. Leo10
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Alli

    Button
    Digne Robbo Doherty TAA*
    Hazard Richarlison Salah Anderson
    Rashford Jimenez
    (Guaita** - Camarasa* - AWB - Kane**)

    A bit confused as to what to do now TAA might be fit this week or next, but I have to hold and play here right? Already on -4.
    Otherwise...
    A. Hold. Hope either TAA or Camarasa plays. Leave Auba til next week.
    B. Take a hit - Kane to Auba and play him.
    C. Take a hit to replace Guaita (can only afford up to 4.4).

    1. MTPockets

    Bench one

    A) TAA
    B) Digne
    C) Jonny
    D) Shaw

    1. Malinwa
      • 3 Years

      A

    2. in sane in de bruyne

      C

  23. dee_top
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years

    A) Kane to Firmino or Auba for -4
    B) play Holebas or Deeney, Kane out next GW

    1. jaywills
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 29 days ago

      On this decision to. Do you have TAA?

      1. dee_top
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 29 days ago

        No

    2. Pierce34
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 29 days ago

      B, good fixture for Watford.

  24. Christina.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    10 months, 29 days ago

    hmmm...maybe I should just sell Alonso for Shaw. Keeping TAA.

    1. Tshelby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 29 days ago

      Like every week Alonso is due to a goal! This weekend will be the weekend

    2. AuFeld
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 29 days ago

      Shaw isn't getting forward enough for me. Same amount of penalty area touches as AWB over the last four.

      How about PVA after this week?

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 29 days ago

        Prob best to get Sane for free. Keep TAA. The 4 pts saved should mean some rise in ranking hopefully.

  25. Tshelby
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 29 days ago

    Play Ings or TAA?

    1. wernerhedgehog
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 29 days ago

      Don't matter. Either TAA plays or he doesn't imho.

      Would start Ings anyhow for that sliver of chance.

      1. Tshelby
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 29 days ago

        Yeah true but imagine TAA will start for sure would you play him or Ings?

        1. wernerhedgehog
          • 2 Years
          10 months, 29 days ago

          Hmm.. Think Liverpool CS points would hurt more, considering plenty have sold Ings or benching. Would play TAA then.

    2. Elsteveio
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 29 days ago

      I have the same issue and going to start TAA with Ings 1st on the bench

    3. in sane in de bruyne
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 29 days ago

      Close. Probably TAA

    4. Tshelby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Thanks all!

    So I was supposed to hit the Alonso >> Robertson -4 move tonight.

    Then I noticed that Vardy (next GW) has scored almost every game he's played against Liverpool. 7 Goals in 6 meetings, incredible!

    Would I be too exposed with 2 Pool Defenders (TAA and Robbo)?

  27. Wiseman Resistant ⚽⚠
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    10 months, 29 days ago

    So TAA might play ?

    wooow

    should i dump him or save ?

    1. in sane in de bruyne
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 29 days ago

      I'm saving. Bednarek to come on for him if he doesn't play.

  28. Jafooli
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Robertson & Auba > TAA & Kane for -8pts?

    Livid

    1. Goonerly
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 29 days ago

      Are you serious?

  29. tisza
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 29 days ago

    was there an official TAA injury statement between Brighton and now that led to red flag?

  30. Malinwa
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 29 days ago

    Wildcard team
    G2G?

    Esteridge
    Digne - Robertson - Shaw
    Pogba - Sane - Richarlison - Salah
    Firmino- Jimenez - Rashford

    Guaita - Doherty - AWB - Puncheon

    Thanks!
