Tips and advice for FPL managers over the busy Christmas period

In our latest Pro Pundits article, Lateriser12 – who has overall ranks of 77th and 189th to his name  gives Fantasy Premier League managers some tips for the Christmas period.


It is the holiday season and the Gameweeks are coming thick and fast. For us Fantasy Premier League fans, this is a gift in itself. During these times, we don’t have too much time to dwell on our decisions and we need to be quick and precise. With this article, I hope to concisely present some important information which might hopefully help you with a few of your dilemmas this Gameweek. We can call it a ‘cheat sheet’, of sorts.

Last time I wrote, I spoke at length about playing the switch-hit against Jamie Vardy (£10.1m). I did it in Gameweek 17 with a Mohamed Salah (£12.2m)-sized captaincy and it led to me halving my rank and jumping from 124k to 66k. This despite not owning Kevin De Bruyne (£10.4m) in Gameweek 17 (else I would have been well inside the top 40k).

I also spoke about Marcus Rashford (£9.1m) at length and I went with my instinct and got him in Gameweek 18 and immediately gave him the captain’s armband. That did not go as well as planned (a small red arrow and I’m currently sitting at 85k) and admittedly I might have a certain bias when it comes to Manchester United assets. That said, when a certain Paul Pogba (£8.4m) came on with 26 minutes to play, we saw a different United playing. Armed with a silky smooth through-ball, he was carving open the Watford defence at will and from memory created three decent chances as soon as he came on. I wonder if the deep block struggle remains if Solskjaer starts using Pogba at number ten.

As a Son Heung-min (£10.0m) owner and a De Bruyne non-ower, the red card wasn’t that big of a problem for me. It led to probably the easiest decision I’ve made this season. In fact, I made the switch three minutes after the red card so as to not overthink this obvious move.

Yes, I can think of hacks and other ‘maverick’ moves to make ground but when it’s this obvious, one must do it. Some might say that De Bruyne is the best value FPL player this season. I say, on current form, De Bruyne is simply the most dangerous FPL asset in the game right now. How he has got away with just 23 points in the last two Gameweeks, I’ll never know.

This leads to one more week in my team for Anthony Martial (£7.7m), Rashford and Christian Pulisic (£7.3m). Hopefully, Mr. Pogba is in a merry mood and puts on a Santa coat gifting big chances to my United assets this Gameweek.

Enough self-indulgence. Now, I’m going to present you with a few pieces of information that might or might not help you with your FPL decisions this week.

First, let us look at fatigue and try determining which of the matches this week might be influenced by them.

If you haven’t already ready Zophar’s excellent piece on the same subject, I highly recommend reading it here. I’m borrowing his chart to determine the ‘fatigue’ factor we talk about here. 

  • Tottenham Hotspur play a Brighton team that have had 20 hours more rest. Both teams have a very short turn-around afterwards.
  • Arsenal have a nice rest period before this Gameweek and a good gap thereafter, as well. They are one of the teams, along with Everton, I will be closely monitoring to see how they line up. There could be some potential bargains from both sides under their new managers.
  • Chelsea face a Southampton team that has had 24 hours more rest than the Blues. That said, Chelsea have a bigger rest period than most teams after this game. We will surely see a fair amount of rotation from Chelsea and I half-expect Jorginho (£5.0m) and Pulisic to start the next game.
  • A tired and half-depleted Crystal Palace team faces a fully fit and rested West Ham side that showed some signs of rejuvenation in their last Gameweek. I wonder if this influences my benching decision between Martin Kelly (£4.4m) and Matt Targett (£4.4m). If he isn’t already, Michail Antonio (£6.9m) should be on your FPL radar.
  • Sheffield United will have had a full day’s rest more than Watford when they meet up. This looks good for Lys Mousset (£5.1m) and John Lundstram (£5.2m) owners. Mousset sat out the last game so he’s looking good to start this one, in my opinion.
  • Manchester United play a Newcastle team that has had a day’s rest more than them. In addition, we need to remember that both Rashford and Martial also played the midweek Carabao Cup tie last week. This means that they have effectively played four games in 12 days already if they start this Gameweek. This has me re-thinking giving the armband to Rashford or Martial despite the positive effect that Pogba might have on them.
  • Leicester and Liverpool will have had the same amount of rest when they play against each other. The big difference here is that most of the Liverpool players played 120 minutes in the game against Flamengo and then had to fly back from Qatar. That said, in the matches after Gameweek 19, Liverpool have a relatively good amount of rest-time to offer their players.
  • Manchester City and Wolves have the highest duration of rest before they meet up for their fixture. It is worth noting that in the two games that follow, both teams have a very short turnaround period. It is impossible to predict if and when De Bruyne gets a rest, but if I were a betting man, I’d say it would be in the home game versus Sheffield United. This will perhaps be influenced by David Silva’s (£7.5m) fitness.

Now I’ll present some important statistical information that might influence your captaincy decision this weekend. We’ll most likely see a split captaincy in Gameweek 19, with there being a number of viable candidates. Here are some noteworthy stats:

Here’s how my squad currently looks for Gameweek 19:

Before I sign off, I would like to wish you and your families a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year. May your holiday season be full of green arrows! I hope this attempt to create a cheat sheet has helped you guys. Until next time.

      Selling Sterling npw makes little sense imo

    4. seewhyaxe

  2. Woy_is_back

    Managed to bottom last page- again! This team and bench order look ok to you? Captain main issue! Have feeling Greenwood will start over James but too risky to put in playing 11 ( and anyway who for!)

    Ryan
    Aurier Lundstram Kelly
    Salah KDB Alli Grealish Richarlison
    Vardy Rashford (c)

    Button Greenwood Söyüncü Rico

          I wouldn’t bet on it. Fplstatistics is quite unreliable with big movements.

        5 months, 11 days ago

        Depends how big you think Kane goes, looks nice for the next 3, once Spurs don't miss Son too much.

        Cantwell very nice to fall back on this week, with more info though.

      2. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        Both 😉

        Salah if buying one now. Pens, minutes up top and finally fully fit.

    • Trophé Mourinho
        5 months, 11 days ago

        yea TC Pukki is locked for me!
        im not changing it, feel free to laugh 😛

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          1. Trophé Mourinho
              5 months, 11 days ago

              Pukki will want revenge

            • 8 Years
            5 months, 11 days ago

            What do you think about this double transfer for GW20?

            TAA + Alli -> Kiko + Salah

            Already have Mane

            1. Steiger
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              5 months, 11 days ago

              Nah

            2. It’s gonna Ben Mee
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              5 months, 11 days ago

              Not sure. As much as I’d love to do that double up myself I have a feeling that fatigue will eventually come into play. Probably sooner than later. Liverpools schedule is pretty hectic.

                But you’d think they would rest one and not the other, that means you always have cover?

                  Hardly 🙁 He's been on my chopping list, but there has always been something "more urgent". Like Son out this week. And the fear of ditching him for Graelish (-4) just to see him punish with brace and Graelish getting fifth yellow...

                No wonder people hate that Pulisic. Me too!

                Was waiting for that drop before bringing Pulisic in. Well rested, he could start the next 2 !

              I’m between Salah/Mane and Rashford for my captain pick. Can anyone sway me either way with some dazzling stats?

                5 months, 11 days ago

                Dave, my psychic gut, says Salah. Qualitative over quantitive any day!

                  5 months, 11 days ago

                  Salah has scored 1 league goal in away fixtures all season. Mane is a better option.

                    Woah. You sure ?

                    He might want to take revenge , because his "ankle" problem started against leicester last time out

              Which option do you prefer?

              Son* Mane KDB Alli Cantwell

              a) Son + Ings > Pogba + Pukki
              b) Son + Rashford > Salah + Pukki
              c) Son + TAA > Salah + up to 5m def
              d) Son > any mid apart Sterling/Salah
              e) Son + Alli > Salah + Grealish

              Cheers for any help.

                Merry Xmas TMMMMMMM
                A but someone more interesting than pukki surely. What’s your limit?

                  5 months, 11 days ago

                  If I get Pogba, 7.9
                  Going too high makes Salah harder to get.

                    I’d do son > Pogba then observe for this GW perhaps. I’m keeping ings and really seriously contemplating playing cantwell over him this GW. I have my eye on Haller since Pellegrini is finally understanding the idea that 2 up top is best for him and us but going to watch this game first

                    1. TorresMagic™
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                      5 months, 11 days ago

                      You have too much West Ham blood. Cantwell stuck on the bench looks like happening whatever I do unless Ings misses out.

              2. Mo Salah No Mane
                • 3 Years
                5 months, 11 days ago

                A
                Only because I personally wouldn't double up yet on Liverpool.
                Maybe from gw24, hopefully the dgw as well.
                Shouldn't A also leave you with a bit of money in the bank to upgrade a defender or Pukki?

                1. Mo Salah No Mane
                  • 3 Years
                  5 months, 11 days ago

                  Or Cantwell I meant not Pukki

                  5 months, 11 days ago

                  1.3m I think.
                  Would like Salah for the home games so Pogba or Alli would probably need to be upgraded.

                  1. Mo Salah No Mane
                    • 3 Years
                    5 months, 11 days ago

                    Just feel the balance of the team shifts a bit when having both Mane and Salah in the team. I don't see that many high scoring games yet so it's a case of getting Manes points the 1 week and Salahs the next. They not both going to exolode weekly and 24.5m is a lot of money.

                Salah and Maupay. Brighton fixtures are a little better imo.

                  I’d want to see a lot more of Pogba before considering him

                I like the look of E. Spurs are way off at the minute, irrespective of their fixtures

                B or E - probably E

                Spurs central midfield looks so slow and unless Erik returns I don’t see Alli getting much joy and losing Son defo won’t improve their attack generally. Grealish is a good pick in himself - can even work as power first bench - and looks a decent long term hold given Villa score goals against all comers

                Dubious about Rashford but he’s worth keeping one more just to see what Pogba does to him.

                I’d rule out losing Ings in A.

                I’d prefer Aguero if you want a premium striker

                Losing Jim for a hit? He’s a machine. Kane may theoretically have a higher ceiling but not playing the way he is for Spurs as they are.

                I’ve been repeating this stat a lot. Jim has returned in 30 of the last 56 matches (beginning of last season) only Mo on 31 has been more consistent. Fixtures? Pah

              Play 1? I also have Kelly in my first XI.

              A) Guaita
              B) Pope

                I’d probably do the Palace double up. I expect Everton to score

              Madness to play Evans (LIV H) over Kelly (WHU H)?

              Could see a well rested West Ham scoring while Liverpool would settle for a 0-0 bore draw. Evans also goal threat from set pieces.

                Rich or rash

                No idea

                Why not play all of them and only start with 3 defenders?

                I’m on Rash for Captain but not entirely sure yet!
