Pro Pundit Teams

How to navigate the FPL fixture congestion over Christmas

Six-time top 5k finisher Utkarsh Dalmia – aka Zophar –  talks us through the recovery time for Premier League players over Christmas in his latest Pro Pundits piece.


The busy Christmas period is almost upon and, for us Fantasy Premier League managers, it’s a fortnight we look upon with great excitement but also some fear of the dreaded ‘R’ word: rotation.

Of course, the schedule is not the same for every team and certain clubs have fixtures better spaced out than others between Gameweeks. As managers, the best we can do is take note of these differences and try to prepare our squads accordingly, predict benchings and see what teams we should target.

Managers often complain about having less than 72 hours to recover between matches and this is backed up by medical data. Recent research has shown that muscle injury risk increases by almost 20% when recovery time is reduced from six to three days.

It concluded that fixture congestion and insufficient recovery time between matches are two of the major risk factors associated with injuries and suggested that players should have at least 96 hours between matches in order to recover fully. Beyond the 96-hour period, there were no significant gains observed.

Keeping this in mind, I have listed the festive schedule for all Premier League teams below, with the respective gaps in hours between fixtures.

Gameweek 19 recovery (column B) does not appear to be a major issue, with most teams having well over 96 hours to rally themselves from their last league game. The clubs with the shortest rest periods are marked in yellow.

Liverpool’s fixture gap is calculated assuming they make the Club World Cup final. Manchester City and Wolves have the longest gap after West Ham, who have a mini-winter break due to their Gameweek 18 fixture postponement.

As you can see in column C, Gameweek 20 is where it gets a lot trickier. No team is afforded the ideal 96-hour recovery period, with Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Sheffield United (all in green) enjoying the longest rest periods.

Watford, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur stand out as the only three teams to be shaded yellow in both columns B and C, which is a potential flag for rotation. However, it is worth nothing that both the matches are at home for Spurs, so there is less time spent on travel etc.

All the teams in yellow are potential rotation concerns but the ones in red have it particularly difficult.

Bournemouth, Leicester, Manchester City, Newcastle and Wolves have less than 48 hours between their Gameweek 19 and Gameweek 20 matches, with Wolves being the lowest at 44.75.

Another factor we have to consider apart from rotation is fatigue, and with such a short recovery period there is naturally going to be a dip in performances for teams who cannot afford to rotate.

This looks like a perilous week for Manchester City assets in particular as I don’t see Pep Guardiola risking the likes of Kevin De Bruyne (£10.3m) in both games.

In comparison, Gameweek 21 (column D) is more forgiving with 12 teams enjoying a minimum of 96 hours of recovery time.

The teams in yellow all have at least 88 hours (except Arsenal with 78), so they should be fine too.

However, the teams in red (Chelsea, Man City and Wolves) have less than 72 hours recovery and again this is something that we need to take note of. Rotation can again be expected at Chelsea and Manchester City given the depths of their squads, while Wolves might be forced to ring the changes as well.

Column E reflects the total number of hours between games over the festive period and it can be seen that Chelsea (236), Spurs (238.5), Watford (241) and Man Utd (246) have the most congested schedules.

All other teams have at least 261 hours, with Liverpool (290.5) and Sheffield Utd (293) having the most relaxed schedule. West Ham’s total is inflated by their blank week in Gameweek 18.

Gamweek 20 and 21 look tricky in particular, so the final column F disregards the gap between Gameweeks 18-19 (column B) and focuses more on those two weeks.

The teams in red, Manchester City and Wolves, have it significantly harder than the rest, with both sides afforded less than 120 hours recovery for two matches combined. The fact that they had longer rest periods in Gameweek 19 does not really help from a recovery standpoint.

Liverpool and Sheffield United’s recovery period again stands out with 168 and 173 hours respectively.

With regards to my team, I have two free transfers and £0.4m in the bank.

Watching the last few games as a Chelsea fan has been soul-crushing and I definitely want to reduce my emotional investment in the Blues. Christian Pulisic (£7.4m) will be making way for Son Heung-min (£10.1m), and, as I need to raise £2.2m to fund it, I’ll either be downgrading Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.3m) or Tammy Abraham (£8.0m). I could swap Raul Jimenez (£7.5m) to Abraham the following week but I’m not sure I will given how badly Chelsea have slumped.

Captaincy is up in the air, with Jimenez, De Bruyne, Jack Grealish (£6.1m) and Son all decent options.

    Four gameweeks in next 10-ish days

    It really is the most wonderful time of the year 🙂

    Cahill is out it seems with a knock and return date is unknown... So now is Dann a nailed one...?? Couldn't afford Guaita and already have Kelly.

    1. FALSE PROFIT

      I have Guaita and no Kelly due to fear of starts. I would find a way of getting Guaita IMO.

      If you insist on a second defender go Tomkins. But no one knows who first choice pairing is at the back - perm 2 of Tomkins Sakho Cahill.

      No one fit is nailed and Kelly has had as many starts as most this season and seems the one to have. Doubling up is ambitious with no left back options in the squad

    Morning all.

    As a one week punt before a WC, what do you think is best?

    A - Richarlison (ARS)
    B - Alli (CHE)
    C - D Silva (LEI)

    1. The 12th Man

    Pull the trigger on Robertson,Mane,Mousett >> Aurier,Alli,Rashford for -4?

    Will give me
    Ryan
    Lundstrum,Aurier,Rico
    Son(c),Alli,Maddison,KDB
    Vardy,Rashford,Jimenez

      One train that’ll get stuck in the station and two over the horizon and running out of steam

      1. The 12th Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        You don’t rate Spurs to keep it going?

        The only player I’m unsure of in that transfer is Aurier.

        1. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          6 months, 27 days ago

          I suspect they’ll become a Mou team. Last week was disillusionment for me. Alli is the one to have I suspect.

          Have Son and may trade down at some point to free up funds.

          1. The 12th Man
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            6 months, 27 days ago

            This is true. Good fixtures and form though over x mas.
            Who would you go for over Alli/Aurier?

            1. pingissimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year

              Alli for sure

      You could create your own problems moving both Pool assets. Getting Rash will force a double tfr to get Mane back. Just do one Pool tfr unless you have a WC.

      1. The 12th Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Won’t be getting Liverpool attack until 24/25 and then I’ll have a choice of Salah or Mane.

      2. The 12th Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Still have Trent so moving Robbo isn’t an issue.

          Fair enough. TAA makes a difference.

      This time of year sometimes you need to mix it up to get ahead.
      Better to be on the trains than sitting at the station.

        I am no expert. I did the Mane Rash route too and ignored the consequences

        1. The 12th Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          6 months, 27 days ago

          There’s 2 ways I can get Rashford without losing Mane.

          1. TAA,Robertson,Mousett > Aurier,Kelly,Rashford
          2. Robertson,Jimenez,Mousset > Kelly,Rashford,Jota/Ings/Maupay

  5. JurgenRocks

    Thinking about selling Pulisic at the weekend? Which is the best midfielder to bring in? (Zaha, Richarlison, etc.)
    Already have Maddison, Dendocker, Alli and Mane. 8.2 ITB

          No - pure luck! 😀 My subs are crap and I've been forced to play whoever is left. Ota's 1 minute cameo cost me Soy's 14 pointer though.

        Seems the standard. If it is the same for everyone it is OK.
        The captain and bench pick have a 2 million place swing probably.

      Some things like Dunk scoring against Liverpool and Willems against City in the same week are almost an unavoidable kick in the balls!

      Reasonable

  8. HurriKane

    6 months, 27 days ago

    Why are some looking to Sell an inform Ings? (8 goals in last 11)

    Soton Fixtures turn but dont you realize he is fixture proof? He's already scored against liv tot che wol ars.

    Plus apart from vardy and rashford not so many has been pulling up trees lately

    1. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Agreed

      But quite looking forward to his being a differential again. Both Chelsea and Spurs concede and he’ll score against one anyway

    2. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Maybe his luck ran out?

        • 7 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        A blank against westham and his luck suddenly ran out and he is rubbish option?

        What are you smoking lad?

            Yh ive been watching him closely and looks a threat everytime.

            Dont know what the stats looklike but he surely racks up lots of shots and dont think his scoring will slow down barring injuries

        2. g40steve
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years

          Unlucky too. Hit the underside of the bar and the outside of the post (even though the latter was incorrectly ruled as offside).

          1. HurriKane
            • 7 Years
            6 months, 27 days ago

            This. On another could have had an hatty.

            Saying his goal scoring is a fluke and his luck will run out is pure negligence. Ings is getting into dangerous goalscoring positions and is the focal point of attack (talismann)

    3. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      I don’t think he is fixture proof, he played against the first three of those teams in their worst possible times and scored due to major mistakes that don’t happen every match and Arsenal is one of the worst defences in the league.

      1. HurriKane
        • 7 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Whatever helps you sleep at night 😉

        Form, stats and eye test back him up.

        Whenever he plays he gets a fair amount of goals. Clinical striker

          Yes.
          Problem is I can't fit Tammy because of that.

          1. HurriKane
            • 7 Years

            Chelsea has gone off the boil lately. Not sure tammy is worth 2m more over Ings on current form

    Hedno
    Kelly Soy Lund
    Cantwell Alli Son Madds
    Rash Vardy abraham

    TAA, mane, Pieters 0.6 ITB 1FT.

    A. madds => grealish
    B. mane => kdb (to get Salah in a couple of GWs)
    C TAA,Madds => Targett/Rico, KDB (-4)

    1. Krispy Kreme
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      B

    Grealish or Richarlison?

    1. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      New manager could improve Richa.

      1. RamaJama
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        But will he still play up front?

        1. FALSE PROFIT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          6 months, 27 days ago

          Depends on Jan tfr window. He is better on the flanks and just as capable of getting points. A Rashford situation too.

    2. balint84
      • 4 Years

      clearly Rich

  12. manu4life99
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    6 months, 27 days ago

    What gw do Rico & Kelly become rotation risks (Daniels & Ward returning)?

    1. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Important. Both 4.4 so getting one of them but not 2 IMO

    2. balint84
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      both are better than Daniels or Ward

  13. Fernando Torres
    • 8 Years
    6 months, 27 days ago

    Best defender 4.8m or less?

    Got Rico, Kelly

    1. g40steve

      One of the Shef boys.

      1. Fernando Torres
        • 8 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        I've got Henderson and Lord

        1. g40steve
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          6 months, 27 days ago

          Dunk, Willems one the Villa sub 4.5s

    2. Lord of Ings
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Would you do pulisic--->grealish/Richa for -4?

      1. Baganuva Hatty
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        6 months, 27 days ago

        I would yes. Puli has to go.
        Rich'son I think has a bigger haul in him.
        Grealish 'is' Villa.
        Both massively inconsistent.
        Grealish and save money for me

    3. balint84
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Dunk

  14. g40steve

    Find the final bench option please?

    Hendo,
    Lundstram, Kelly, Rico,
    C Son, Alli, KDB, Grealish, Maddy
    Vardy, Tammy, Rashford

    Button, ???, Soy, Trent,

    1. Hy liverpool

      Maddison

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Ta.

    2. Baganuva Hatty
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Except Kelly. I have B. Williams This is my team.
      It is between madders and Abraham.
      Vardy covers Leicester. So madders first sub for me.

      Interested to see your wildcard plans with the line up you have. Peace and Goodwill

  15. Lord of Ings

    Would you do pulisic--->Richa/grealish for -4?

    1. balint84
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      not for -4

    2. Bronski
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 27 days ago

      I would Rich new manager boost Grealish on pens (hopefully) Pulisic flatters to decieve

      1. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        He's certainly deceived me!

    3. Krispy Kreme
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      I’d go richarlison. Grealish 4 YCs puts me off especially for a -4

      1. Annie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Rich on 4 too

  16. balint84
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 27 days ago

    captain Son / Jimenez ?

    1. Bronski
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Son

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Son

  17. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 27 days ago

    Which one:

    A) Dendocker (nor)
    B) Richarlison (ARS) -4

    1. balint84
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      A) 2 points
      B) might scores but -4 means 2point. but in long term B is better

    2. Krispy Kreme
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      B if you plan to hold for the long term

    3. Bronski
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Ive done Rich for -4 this week new manager boost hopefully. Worth a punt i think. For me thats what its about taking a calculated risk and great when it pays off

    Hi guys and girls

    Thoughts on Mane + Pulisic to Sterling + Martial for free?

    My GW team would be:

    Henderson
    Lundstram Aurier Rico (TAA Söyüncü)
    Sterling Son KDB Martial (Dendoncker)
    Vardy Rashford Jiménez

    Thanks!

  19. The 12th Man

    If Arteta isn’t announced at Arsenal today think I might get Richarlison instead of Alli.

  20. Lecky Legs FC
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 27 days ago

    Looking on doing Maddison > Richarlison for free have Vardy as LEI cover thoughts?

    1. Bronski

  22. New Article
  23. Johan Queef
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    6 months, 27 days ago

    Which combo is best to accompany Mane, KDB, Maddison, Alli & Vardy over the coming weeks:

    A) Son, Jimenez & Connolly 352 (means TAA to Aurier or Ota also)

    B) Rashford, Jota & Dendonkey 343 (keep TAA)

  24. FALSE PROFIT
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    What happens to TAA 4 yellows?
    GW19 upcoming is halfway. Has he escaped the ban?

    1. Mince n Tatties
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      He needs to avoid getting one in GW19
