What latest Double Gameweek announcements mean for our FPL squads

Both of Manchester United’s Double Gameweeks have been confirmed after details of their rearranged games were revealed on Friday afternoon.

The Red Devils were waiting on new dates for the Blank Gameweek 31 visit of Manchester City to Old Trafford and the Blank Gameweek 33 trip to Wolves.

The first of those has been pushed right back into Double Gameweek 35 and will be played on Wednesday, April 24.

The second of those, the trip to Molineux, has been brought forward into Double Gameweek 32, to be played on Tuesday, April 2.

That means we now know the schedule for the remainder of Manchester United’s season.

Their Double Gameweeks will look like this:

Double Gameweek 32: Watford (home) + Wolves (away)
Double Gameweek 35: Everton (away) + Manchester City (home)

The first of those looks more appealing than the second, with Paul Pogba (£8.8m) and Marcus Rashford (£7.8m) looking almost essential for Double Gameweek 32, possibly even Triple Captain candidates.

For now, we only have one set of Double Gameweek fixtures for Manchester City which looks like this:

Double Gameweek 35: Tottenham (home) + Manchester United (away)

If Manchester City win their FA Cup quarter-final against Swansea, that will add a Gameweek 33 home match against Cardiff to their list of psotponed fixtures.

With Double Gameweek 35 now already taken for them, it could mean we have an opportunity to pig out on their assets in Double Gameweek 32 with Fulham (away) and Cardiff (home) the potential cannon fodder.

As for Wolves, their Double Gameweek 32 looks like this:

Double Gameweek 32: Burnley (away) + Manchester United (home)

Currently outstanding for Wolves is their postponed Gameweek 31 meeting with Arsenal.

With Double Gameweek 32 now taken up for them, it is probable that this will move to Double Gameweek 35. If that were to happen, then they would have a nice looking set of doubles that week of Brighton (home) and Arsenal (home).

The Premier League have confirmed that there will be no more Double Gameweek announcements until after the FA Cup quarter-final matches on March 16 and 17, which coincide with Blank Gameweek 31.

    Is Boruc nailed on a starter for whole season ?

      If you have to ask then probably not... however, with GKs its usually a case of it's their spot to lose until they make a couple of howlers in succession.

      I will probably bring him in soon as GW 31/33 cover

      1. yuva247
        • 1 Year

        Thx mate- I have no GK to play in BGWs and that's d reason for asking if he is guaranteed to start

        bournemouth have arsenal away and are atrocious away from home?

          You need to examine Bournemouth post Begovic and Clyne included. The most frustrating thing about owning Begovic was he made no saves. Boruc had 7 against Chelsea and 6 against Liverpool. Arsenal are not an attacking force like Liverpool

            I understand boruc if u have a keeper who blanks gw31 and gw33 else it's absolutely no need.Flappy will get loads of saves anyway.Eg:city win 4-0 and flappy 6 saves,arsenal 2-0 with boruc 3 saves u get net 2 anyway

    3. Business Cat

      I'll monitor him. He's probably my best choice for a 31/33 keeper
      - can't get Allison, already have 3x pool
      - Heaton too expensive
      - already got Pereira...don't want a defensive double-up with Schmeichel

      ...so I hope he keeps his place

    Are hits taken away straight away from raking or are they deducted at the end of the gameweek?

    1. yuva247
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 10 hours ago

      They are updated in league table so I guess it's the same for rankings

    2. Salarrivederci
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 10 hours ago

      Straight away.
      Last points update 9 hours ago had last nights two matches + all hits taken

    3. Jᴀʀᴠish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      OR after first update, WR doesn't take hits into account at all.

    4. SMEE_HEEE
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 10 hours ago

      At the start

      So if you scored 4 points yesterday and had one hit (-4), your new overall score this morning would show unchanged

    4. SomeoneKnows

      3 months, 10 hours ago

      Given the confirmed DGW 32 matches, if I currently own Pogba, Rashford, Jimenez, Doherty, 3xLiverpool and 2xWest Ham players... Then I'm better off FH31, WC33 and keeping the ManU and Wolves players right?

      1. Blue&White85
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 10 hours ago

        That sounds sensible to me. Let’s you build your team for the double in 32.

      2. Business Cat
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 9 hours ago

        I a similar position

        Definitely FH32:
        - bench Pog, Rash, Jimi that week and play Doh
        - put out 9/10 players GW31, you've already got 5
        - use FTs in the run up to GW31, get some Leicester players in.

        FH32 cos you're gonna want 3x Man City for DGW32...they have the nicest fixtures.

        Then your GW33 team is still OK, cos the same teams blank in GW31 & GW33 pretty much

        1. SomeoneKnows
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 9 hours ago

          Suppose I do it your way, when do I use my WC?

          Why not FH31 and until then load up on Man City players for free?

          1. Business Cat
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 9 hours ago

            You could do that.

            However you've already got 3x Liverpool players, away at Fulham in GW31, that's the majority of your points right there. So you're FHing in GW31 is basically being used to ram your team full of probably low scoring assets from LEI, NEW, BOU, BUR... to fill out your team.

            Would you not prefer to FH in DGW32 in order to bring in 3x City, 3x United, and some others to field a full team of doublers (not just 6-7 DGW players, ALL DGW players). Far more upside!

            Plus, if you set up your actual team for GW31, it's still good for GW33 too.

            If you FH31 and build for DGW32, your GW33 team is a disaster zone. Even if you WC33 to put out a team in GW33, that team is a pile of crap for DGW35 when you're probably gonna BB?

            So, my strategy (and many people's):
            - build for GW31/33
            - FH32 for 11 DGW players
            - WC34
            - BB35

            Benefits:
            - 2 optimal teams full of DGW players for 32 and 35
            - construction of those teams left til the latest possible date - more information, less unknowns
            - GW31/33 are navigable without taking many (if any) hits, you won't lose much (if any) ground to FH31'ers
            - FH31'ers will likely lose ground to you in GW33

              nicely put together, you know I have been looking for something that works long term , this makes the most sense to me after reading through.
              I'll most definitely be implementing this strategy.

          That sounds logical. Can I ask, do you still have your WC?

      3. Mweene
        • 5 Years

        I've been playing with this idea.

        Advantage - you can triple cap in a DGW

      My squad feels like it needs a shake up. Want Danilo out, but planning for GW31... any advice here?

      Alison
      Kola Doherty Lascelles
      Salah Pogba Son Jota Anderson
      Firmino Rashford

      Hamer Ings Bennett Danilo

      1. Dont_Win_Friends_With_Salah…
        • 1 Year

        4 million ITB. Thinking Danilo and Anderson to Chilwell and Hazard.

        1. The 5% Team
            3 months, 9 hours ago

            at least wait until after todays PL and Cup final matches...but seem like decent moves yes.

      2. Scotty B
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 9 hours ago

        De Gea Speroni
        Doherty Pereira VVD Laporte Bednarek
        Salah Mane Son Richarlison Anderson
        Jimenez Rashford Rondon

        How does this sound with no WC?

        GW28 - Speroni > Boruc & BB also meaning now have a gk to cover DDG in the blanks
        GW31- will be able to field 11 players by using 1 FT between now and then
        GW32 - FH for the 1st DGW
        GW35 - TC for the 2nd DGW

        1. The 5% Team
            3 months, 9 hours ago

            yeah looks like a plan. Next GW might be the best BB week for your team indeed....at least looking until GW34

            If Boruc continues to play

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 9 hours ago

              It's tedious people saying he won't based on nothing. No article link. No Bournemouth fan opinion. Begovic being horrendous and clashing with the manager after being dropped etc

                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                3 months, 9 hours ago

                Just a risk, Boruc could have an awful game and the situation gets turned on it’s head

                1. Kiwivillan
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  3 months, 9 hours ago

                  I've seen comments that he let 3 in against Liverpool so is on chopping block when reports of match and fan reaction is had really good game and prevented it from being a lot more

                  1. Eat my goal!
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    3 months, 9 hours ago

                    Well pool could score that against anyone. My comment was merely IF, as in it’s something to be aware or cautious of but otherwise certainly an option

                2. Kiwivillan
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  3 months, 9 hours ago

                  All that aside plays or dropped he's the only very cheap keeper currently playing and most people looking at him are getting him in for Hamer Button Speroni so it's moot if he gets dropped and gigantic upside if plays 31 33

        2. Bobadoba
          • 9 Years

          Lacazette and Mane out for Aguero and a 7.5 mid like Richarlison?

          1. Eat my goal!
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              • 9 Years

              Why not? Aguero could do very well. Maybe another hatty.

                3 months, 9 hours ago

                Agree, but the idea of bringing in rich is awful - plus mane is playing well and a good option for the blanks, whilst Lacazette has a good fixture also

          2. RFCSPACE
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 8 hours ago

            I'm thinking Laca and Son out for Aguero and Almiron/Fraser. Agree getting Aguero is worth the downgrade elsewhere but I wouldn't touch Richarlison

          for those with all chips remaining and planning on FH GW32, WC GW34, BB/TC GW35 - need some advice

          So I know we should be targeting Liv/Leic/Bourn/Newc players as they play both blank GW 31/33

          However which assets are best to lose in order to do so ?

          Fab/Hamer
          Shaw Kola Doherty AWB Schindler
          Pogba Son Salah Fanderson Hojberg
          Rashford Auba Jimenez

          1. Business Cat
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 9 hours ago

            Of those, I'd keep Pog, Rash for definite, Jimi, Doh possibly.

            Ditch the Arsenal

            Convert Son to Mane ahead of GW31

            You've likely got a LOT of value tied up in them, selling then buying back will be painful or not possible

          2. The 5% Team
              3 months, 9 hours ago

              Chelsea play both blanks as well.

              I'd say have 2 FT come GW31 so you can make at least 2 last minute changes. Could lose Shaw, AWB, Auba...maybe Rashford, Jimenez.

              And getting 9 players out in GW31 seems enough

                yes, I captained him as well...too much playing the fixture. Will bench as well next GW but def keeping him until GW31, not wasting another FT to get him out

                I went for Arnautovic and nearly captained him cos I felt like a punt against Fulham.

                    I took the captain off and put it back on Son when the predicted line-ups all had him benched 🙂

                    Never really got the FAnderson bandwagon TBH.

                    For my team personally, I had the following choice for GW31/33:
                    - Firmino & FAnderson, or
                    - Mane and Arnautovic

                    ...hands down it's option 2 I wanted, so I moved Firmino to Arnie specifically before Fulham (while Firmino will likely do nothing at United)

              Is there a possibility of dgw after gw35 or we if we don't use till then resigned to salah gw36 in a sgw

                    Kane vs Huddersfield in GW34 also a TC option in a SGW

                      Salah at Fulham in GW31 another one

                    maybe one of the Brighton fixtures...but too much speculation to be even sort of sure. Probably we'll know more after GW31.

                      May I ask why people here are normally so scared of doing -4s but for blank gameweeks, it is encouraged?

                        If you can’t field 11 the impact is more -2 than -4

                      2. The 5% Team
                          3 months, 9 hours ago

                          if that player wont play in both BGWs...taking a hit for a player who does play in both seems somewhat reasonable I guess

                          3 months, 9 hours ago

                          In normal gameweeks, you're taking a hit to take out one playing player for another (normally)...it's cost is 4pts

                          In a blank GW, you're probably bringing in a playing player for a non-playing player (probably)...you could argue it's 4pts - 2pts (for appearance) = 2pts cost overall

                          So hits are "cheaper" in the 2nd scenario

                            Indeed. Ditching Utd/Wolves assets for hits in preparation for 31/33 seems to make sense. The only negative is if you've had them a long time & will lose heavily on them moneywise.

                          Left it to last 10 mins to do AWB>Rice or Diop. Went Rice. Cost me -2 and no AWB who costs 4.6m to buy back instead of 4.3m I got for him but was worried Snodgrass wouldn't start and only 8 players this week. In hindsight would've kept AWB but if went with Diop would've felt like a genius

                        So, that's it.
                        We won't know dates for the rest of the recsceduled dgws until after gw31.

                        There is an international break between 31 and 32, so I guess the chances are majority of them can still be slotted into 32 with enough warnings

                          It's almost certain that City/Car would be in DGW32 and Wolves/Ars will be in DGW35, the rest of the games to be rearranged could go in either DGW

                          It depends on your team and strategy.

                            not the best, but a decent option

                            3 months, 9 hours ago

                            I just see that as being a problem for 33. 31 players play 33. Not seen a viable 33 team posted using 31FH to convince me otherwise

                                Alternative I've thought about is less than 11 team in 31 FH in 33. Haven't done any research though

                                  I disagree. I will have 7 DGW players, Salah, Robertson (Great fixtures) and a couple others with great fixtures. Depending on fixtures I may even use my TC.

                          0 FT

                          I am going dow a different route than most and playing FH in 31. Hoping to make some progress, whilst keeping my value, over those who are dead-ending their team over the next few weeks. I am hoping I get the doubles I want in GW32 before playing my WC in GW33.

                              Good planning. Can definitely work.
                              I'm going FH 32 way.
                              Currently have 6 player's from gw 31.
                              Will get
                              Higuain,Barnes,Fraser definitely for auba/kun, Kamara,Jota

                              Have Auba atm. Thinking about getting Kun next gw.
                              So remaining 3 FT could lead me to 9 in gw 31.

                                I can see the logic in those moves. Higuain is a step down for me but if you get him the week of GW31 you haven't lost anything. The other 2 are fair switches. At least you aren't decimating your team in the process.

                                1. Amey
                                    3 months, 8 hours ago

                                    Yeah.
                                    Can always go
                                    Hazard/Wilson instead of Higuain/Fraser.
                                    Will wait till late as possible.

                                      I probably prefer that combo myself.

                                      1. Amey
                                          3 months, 8 hours ago

                                          Yeah.
                                          I can't decide right now, but will get kun & Save FT & pull the trigger in gw 30/31.

                                  I listened to guy on FPL Surgery podcast and feel exactly the same way as he discussed. Could play FH in 31 to get players in fixtures not really keen on and get 10-20 above the average then see screenshots of people that FH 11 players that all have DGW in 32 and instant reaction is uh oh

                                    Exactly. I think people have been over thinking this and jumped to the wrong conclusion. People seem to be filling their team full of mid table also ran players. I will keep my heavy hitters. We will all have similar teams again in GW33 I just will hopefully have overtaken a few in the meantime.

                                Having 3 Man U and 2 Wolves, the plan is to bench them on BGW31. That means I could end up with a max. of 6 players for BGW31...

                                    No WC left so I should use it for one of the DGWs

                                      I’ve no WC so I’m setting up my team to have cheap playing options for 31 & 33 - mainly by switching out wolves assets who have che blank bur Utd

                                        when do you plan to play your FH? I would like to keep Doherty. Jimenez could go for a BGW31 and 33 player

                                          32 - since it’ll give the highest potential ceiling.

                                          31 I expect to have 9 players

                                      I would largely ignore the blanks/doubles and go pick the best players. Then FH in the week which causes most issues. That may be GW31.

                                  Potentially you only need to get the right C in BGW. It was mentioned this was the case last year with Salah C in BGW and seem to recall I did this

                                    Yes it will be Salah C against fulham for sure

                                    1. Kiwivillan

                                      That's probably better than vs Hudd

                                  Why bench them all - wolves fixtures turn also

                                    I think you can get away with 7-8 player's.
                                    Who else you have from United other than Pogba, Rashford ??
                                    I'd lose him to get a bgw player

                                    1. Yome

                                      I have Lindelof, I could sell him for Pereira for instance

                                          3 months, 8 hours ago

                                          I'd do that.
                                          FH in gw32 can be great instead of bgw. You can easily get the points you lose for playing less player's

                                        Nit a major injury i think.
                                        But since gw 28 is midweek he'll miss it imo

                                        No timeframe. But suspect he'll be a doubt for gw28 on wed vs manu

                                        Hammy. It maybe a few weeks. As long as he is back for 32 then that is fine for me.

                                            if he's confirmed out for GW29 and 30 then I probably sell him, as these were the only GWs I planned on playing him. Will FH in 32...might get him in for that GW, but probably too many other good options then.

                                              Not in the top 10k. Son is by far the most popular captain for us.

                                                  Currently got most players who has double games on week 32 - so shipping them out to prepare for gw31 and again bring them back for 32 using free hit feels wrong 🙂

                                                I misguidedly used mine

                                                I’m switching out wolves assets and improving bench players to navigate 31 & 33

                                                FH 32 since it looks like the best DGW

                                                  My cash league is too ruthless. Not using WC in tandem with DGWs is a season write off

                                                    Indeed, proper messed up this season with rash transfers. But will battle to the end and try to make better decisions next year - GW 35 is going to hurt a bit.

                                                Had a 2 year hiatus and pulled it in a panic on the last GW in Jan without realising the rules had changed! Regretting it now although did reap significant rewards at the time of using it.

                                                Either way good luck to us non WC's!

                                                      Ideal outcome for the utd/pool game..2-2

                                                      Robertson assisting both goals

                                                      Not asking for much.

                                                          Weird feeling as a big Utd fan but I could do with a Salah hatty!

                                                          I’d take that variations to the above

                                                          3-2

                                                          Don’t care who gets the third as long as pool lose and Utd destroy their title hopes

                                                          Salah goal, TAA goal and assist

                                                              I own Shaw, Robertson, Salah, Rashford, Pogba. I can't work out if I prefer 3-3 or 0-0! In reality United keeping a clean sheet probably suits me best with a 3-0 win with goals for Pogba and Rashford.
