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.

    2 FTs, which are the better moves?

    A: Tomori + Zaha > Aurier + Grealish
    B: TAA + Zaha > Aurier + Alli

    Rest of the team:
    Pope (Button)
    Lundstram, Rico, Soyuncu (TAA, Tomori)
    Son, KDB, Cantwell (Mane)
    Vardy, Jimenez, Abraham

    1. Rhodes your boat
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      A

    2. J ⚒ Gimme your Mané…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      How much have you got in the bank?

      I’d just keep Zaha, keep TAA and just use one of your 2 FT to move Tomori on.

      1. Beavis
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        0.3m.

        Zaha's stats are a concern and his goal is somewhat masking Palace's poor attacking.

    3. Joey Barton and Friends
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      I would prioritize getting rid of Tomori

    4. LE CHARO
      6 months, 21 days ago

      A for me. Tomori has probably lost his place and you'll probably want TAA back later.

    5. Trophé Mourinho
      6 months, 21 days ago

      just do tomori to kelly, keep zaha until boxing day potentially

      1. Beavis
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        Thanks everyone.

  2. Rhodes your boat
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 21 days ago

    For this week only,

    A) sterling (have kdb)
    B) richarlison

    1. SAY MY NAME
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      gotta say B with the way Arsenal are at the moment

      1. Rhodes your boat
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        Thanks, think sterling more capable of a haul but understand the reasoning

        1. SAY MY NAME
          • 3 Years
          6 months, 21 days ago

          he is in general, but has hasn't hauled for a long time and up against a good Leicester defence, Arsenal don't have any defence so for a week punt Richarlison might fill his boots

          1. Rhodes your boat
            • 3 Years
            6 months, 21 days ago

            True, saves his hauls for the cups aha! Hopefully stays that way if I go rich!

    2. Joey Barton and Friends
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Wondering the same. Rich is more logical but Sterling maybe back in form?

      1. Rhodes your boat
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        My thoughts too, would’ve been easier if rich got the brace tonight instead! Basically I’d prefer sterling but rich has the better fixture and kdb could possibly cover the city attack

        1. Joey Barton and Friends
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          6 months, 21 days ago

          Plus Sterling v Leicster defense and Rich v Arsenal’s

          1. Rhodes your boat
            • 3 Years
            6 months, 21 days ago

            That’s what I’m thinking, who are you leaning towards?

    3. Beavis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      A.

    4. AD2110

  6. Trophé Mourinho
    6 months, 21 days ago

    Sterling braces lads, time to get him in

    1. Avon calling
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Wrong

      1. UTD - HATED, ADORED, BUT NE…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        6 months, 21 days ago

        He definitely scored a brace. Saw it with my own eyes

        1. Scott Talent
          • 4 Years
          6 months, 21 days ago

          He did so against world class defenders too.

        2. Avon calling
          • 6 Years
          6 months, 21 days ago

          Sorry. Thought you were saying he will brace this weekend.

  7. the Penman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    6 months, 21 days ago

    Start Dendoncker or Soyuncu this week?

    1. Trophé Mourinho
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Den

    2. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Dendo

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Soy. Dendo is POO and Soy at least has attacking threat.

    4. Kung Fu Football
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Same quandary playing Dendoncker.

  8. Maddamotha
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 21 days ago

    Guaita
    Soy Lundstram Rico
    Son KDB Alli Mount
    Vardy Tammy Jimenez

    Button Dendo Tomori TAA

    1ft and 2.6itb

    Which one would you do?

    A. Tomori > Burn/Targett
    B. Mount > Grealish/Rich/Martial (will have to play Soy)

    1. Trophé Mourinho
      6 months, 21 days ago

      tough but probably A, because if any of ur defenders dont start this week you wont field 11, or you can bench soy at least. Mount should start right

      1. Maddamotha
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        Worried about a Mount benching tbh. Cheers!

    2. UTD - HATED, ADORED, BUT NE…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Beautiful team - A to Burn out of those - I’m guess Aurier or even Dunk’s off limits as you have plans for the banked funds?

      1. Maddamotha
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        Wanna get a Pool player in yeah!

  9. wolves_simmo

    In: KDB & Alli

    1. Beavis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Probably.

    2. Just Kreuzing
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      6 months, 21 days ago

      Yes

  10. Tsparkes10
    • 1 Year
    6 months, 21 days ago

    A) Differential with Jota and Martial
    B) Mix with Jimi and Grealish
    C) Rash, Dendo

    1. Bruno BaNani

    Jimmy, Vardy (Mousett)

    1FT 0.4

  12. Kasper the ghost keeper
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 21 days ago

    A) Maddison -> Grealish
    B) TAA and Maddison -> Aurier and Alli
    C) Keep Maddison

    1. Lingard’s Shin Guards
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 21 days ago

      B looks good if it’s for free, otherwise c

      1. Kasper the ghost keeper
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        Yeah 2ft

    2. KINGS
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 21 days ago

      A. I’d still hold on to TAA

  13. Lingard’s Shin Guards
    • 1 Year
    6 months, 21 days ago

    Rp.

    Tammy, Pulisic, TAA -> Rash, Alli, Aurier (-4) look like good moves? Would give me this for the blank gw -

    Guaita
    Lund Aurier Rico
    KDB Son Alli Maddison
    Vardy Rash Mousset

    Button Kelly Soy Mane (0ft 0.8m itb)

  14. HMC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    6 months, 21 days ago

    Have Aurier, Lundstram and Soyuncu
    please pick 2 of these to own on wildcard:
    Kelly
    Dunk
    Targett

    On wildcard and currently have Kelly / Dunk
    Is Dunk / Targett safer if/when Kelly loses his spot?

    1. KINGS
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 21 days ago

      2 & 3

  15. Trophé Mourinho
    6 months, 21 days ago

    in fairness to Arteta he must have some confidence to go to Arsenal in that state. Maybe he will turn it around, but i dont think the odds are in his favour.

    1. Jimmers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      The main thing he needs is time. It's not a quick fix

      1. Trophé Mourinho
        6 months, 21 days ago

        yep, but I dont think they will have much joy in the jan transfer window. Other clubs can just hold them to ransom

    2. AuFeld
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Ha - you think any available professional manager (let alone an assistant manager) would turn down the opportunity to coach Arsenal?

  16. DA Minnion
    • 7 Years
    6 months, 21 days ago

    Did I make a major mistake taking out Maddison for Grealish last evening in order to afford Rashford.

    1. Jafoole_88
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Yes

    2. Trophé Mourinho
      6 months, 21 days ago

      :/
      it could work out

    3. Scott Talent
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Yes

    4. KINGS
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 21 days ago

      No

    5. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Probably not big. But I just checked the teams Rashford scored against... Unless OGS starts Greenwood I wouldn't bet much on Rashford scoring.

    6. El Lobito 10
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Rashford is the fifth highest scoring player in the league. My money is on him getting back to top three this week. Maddison has City and Liverpool next.

  17. MikeLowrey
    • 2 Years
    6 months, 21 days ago

    A) Mane to Son
    B) Mane & Mousset to Son & Jimenez (-4)

    Will be using my WC next week.

    Currently on A which gives me this lineup for GW18

    Pope
    Lundstram Kelly Soyuncu
    KDB Son Maddo Alli
    Rashford Vardy Mousset

    (Button Cantwell Tomori TAA)

    1. Lukakuna
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Wouldn't take a hit before a Wildcard

    2. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      A imo

    3. Boberella
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      A with WC next week

  18. Lukakuna
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 21 days ago

    Any KDB non owners out there? What are your plans, getting him now? Getting him for GW19?

    1. HashAttack
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      sold Mane for him this week .. gives me the option of getting Salah instead

      1. Lukakuna
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        Have been considering that, but got Mane at 11.6 so might keep him

    2. Warby84
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Yep not owned but will by 20, downgrade Kane to Maupay...

      1. KINGS
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 21 days ago

        Same consideration. But Spurs vs Norwich on GW 20. Not an easy call

        1. Warby84
          • 4 Years
          6 months, 21 days ago

          I have son as well

          1. Lukakuna
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            6 months, 21 days ago

            I think Kane is too expensive. For me it´s either KDB or a double up with Son and Alli. Tough call too

    3. yakirh
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Sold Jesus and got him in 2 days ago

    4. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Ditched Mane for him already for this week.

    5. El Lobito 10
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      It's a trap. He will play deeper when Silva is back, City have Leicester and Wolves, they have a very congested festive schedule, and Pep roulette. Spurs assets better for now.

  19. All about the galacticos
    • 5 Years
    6 months, 21 days ago

    Who to bench?
    A) Cantwell (H) vs Wolves
    B) Aurier (H) vs Chelsea

    1. KINGS

    How has grealish looked recently? I haven't seen much villa. Good short term punt to replace mane?

    1. Just Kreuzing
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Yes but he is on 4 yellow cards

    2. Boberella
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      He’s got good looking fixtures, but yeah, the 4 yellows are putting some people off.
      I’d want to keep mane though if you have half decent bench cover for this GW

    3. El Lobito 10

      Stupid. He's looked stupid. Haircut and shinpads.

      1. Boberella

        6 months, 21 days ago

        Lol

  21. fridge

    Pope
    Lundstram. Aurier. Montoya
    Maddison. Alli. Son. KDB
    Ings. Vardy. Abraham

    Button. Donker. Soyuncu. TAA

    1.9 ITB, is this GTG?

    1. Boberella
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      I’d bank the FT.
      Or as per below, maybe Tammy to someone for this GW. Depends if you want Pool attack after this GW, in which case I’d save.

  22. Boberella

    Hey DZers,

    Wildcarded last week and put in Tammy for Jimi. Didn’t pay off.
    Thinking Tammy back to Jimi, or Jota with my FT this week.
    Jota frees up funds to upgrade Sissoko (don’t ask) to potentially Zaha and rotate Jota/Zaha or even get Aurier in for Rico.

    Thoughts would be very much appreciated.

    1. Boberella
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      If it helps, team is:

      Guaita
      Lund Rico Kelly
      KDB (c) Alli Grealish Sissoko
      Vardy Tammy Rashford

      Button Soy TAA Mane

      1. HashAttack
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        If you have a free slot then I think Sissoko is good option for your 5th mid

        1. Boberella
          • 3 Years
          6 months, 21 days ago

          Yeah, getting him on WC was a bit of a punt. May keep and see how he goes.
          Just whether to bin Tammy or not.

      2. Wiseman Resistant ⚽⚠
        • 8 Years

        Keep Tammy

        1. Boberella
          • 3 Years
          6 months, 21 days ago

          Think Chelsea will improve?

    2. Alan The Llama
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      I'd get Jimenez over Jota

      1. Boberella
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        Thanks

    3. jia you jia you

      Keep Rico, cracking value. Just save FT imo unless you really want Jimenez, if so do Tammy to Jimenez. GL

    Would a WC be worth it this week, and just bench two Pool players. This is what I'm thinking:

    Current team for GW18

    Pope
    Soyuncu Lundstram Kelly
    KDB Maddo Alli Cantwell
    Rashford Vardy Mousset
    (Button Tomori TAA* Mane*)

    A - WC option 1
    Ryan
    Targett Lundstram Kelly
    KDB Alli Son Grealish
    Rashford Vardy Jimenez

    (Button Traore Soyuncu TAA*)

    B - WC option 2
    Ryan
    Soyuncu Lundstram Targett Kelly
    KDB Son Grealish
    Rashford Vardy Maupay

    (Button Cantwell Salah* TAA*)

    C - Mane for Son this week, WC next

    1. Alan The Llama
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      C

    2. Boberella
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      C for sure

  24. Boberella
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 21 days ago

    Probably C

        No but I'm happy to go without Liv mid for this 6 GW period then will likely go back to a triple up for the beginning of their juicy run of fixtures from the end of January.

        1. Boberella
          • 3 Years
          6 months, 21 days ago

          Fair play then. And keeping TAA which I agree with.
          Good team.

        sold him for Pulisic(C) in GW14 and that move killed me over the past four GWs! Happy to have him back, some lovely fixtures on the horizon... just hope he behaves himself lol
