How I’m using the FA Cup weekend to forward plan in Fantasy Premier League

FPL Family’s Sam Bonfield is looking forward to the downtime on FA Cup third round weekend and planning ahead.


What a rollercoaster this festive period has been. This point of the season is where I normally hit my stride and by making good decisions during the Christmas fixture congestion, it usually sets me up well for the second half of the season.

With the close of Gameweek 19 I was around the 7k mark having had a green arrow of around 6,000 places and I was hoping that this was the start of holding my position as opposed to yo-yoing as I had been in the weeks previous.

Alas, Gameweek 20 went catastrophically wrong with my players blanking, my captain – Jamie Vardy (£10.1m) – missing and Kevin De Bruyne (£10.6m) causing me red arrows with every attacking return he registered as he was so highly captained and vice-captained as a result of Vardy’s absence.

In many ways, I think the Gameweek came too quickly for me – a match on the Friday followed by a new Gameweek on the Saturday just meant that I didn’t have the thinking time, which is so important to how I play the game.

One of my key FPL rules is that I never make a change on the day of the deadline, so this meant I had a matter of hours between the end of the Manchester City game on the Friday and my self-imposed deadline. I think I was also a little complacent as I had set my Wildcard team for Boxing Day’s Gameweek 19 and in turn also for Gameweek 20, meaning that because of the tight deadline, I didn’t think enough about the latter.

As a result, Gameweek 21 saw a lot of pondering. However, I just couldn’t settle on a transfer that felt right – they either involved getting in a player a week or two earlier than I had wanted or losing a player before a game I thought they would do well in. It was because of this I did something that I never do and burned a transfer.

This worried me but actually it was the right decision. Vardy was handed the armband again (mostly as a shield because he was rating so highly in all the captain stats and was indeed the most-captained player of the Gameweek) so when he missed the game, vice-captain Dele Alli (£8.8m) stepped up.

I really thought he would be better than he was especially given his record against Southampton, and so his blank filled me with dread as with most people’s vice-captains on Marcus Rashford (£9.1m) or De Bruyne I feared for my rank ahead of their fixtures. However, with blanks for Rashford, Anthony Martial (£7.9m) and De Bruyne, as well as a one-point cameo for Raheem Sterling (£11.8m) and Sergio Aguero (£11.7m) missing in action, I got away with it. Add that to goals from Todd Cantwell (£4.9m), Danny Ings (£6.7m) and Mohamed Salah (£12.3m), an assist from Tammy Abraham (£7.8m) and clean sheets for Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.4m) and Caglar Soyuncu (£5.1m), I have seen a green arrow back to around 9k. Now to maintain and build on it. 

For me, the first FA Cup weekend is the perfect opportunity to look ahead through the rest of January and into February, as it offers a breathing space following on from the busy festive period. This is the time where the Members Area and the Season Ticker take on ever-increasing importance.

This year the changes in managers over Christmas at West Ham, Everton, Arsenal, Watford and Spurs add a whole different element to this period. All five of these new manager teams sit in the top half of the Season Ticker for Gameweeks 22-26. All five clubs also contain key players who, with a combination of fixtures and new manager bounce, could be fantastic differential picks after the FA Cup weekend. 

The key players on my watchlist from ‘new manager bounce’ clubs are:

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£5.8m)

Carlo Ancelotti saying that he thinks the striker “is going to be at the top in England and in Europe” highlights just how important Calvert-Lewin is likely to be in this Everton team over the course of the rest of the season.

His heatmap and the stats from the Members Area highlight how much of a positive change Ancelotti has had on his game, as does the three goals in the last four games.

As a result, he has already scored eight goals this season: more than in any other Premier League campaign. If Abraham continues to under-perform, Calvert-Lewin would make a lovely third striker option and is one I am seriously considering for Gameweek 22 onwards.  

Lukasz Fabianski (£4.9m)

West Ham’s poor run of form can be partially linked to Fabianski’s injury. Since his return for Gameweek 20, Fabianski has returned eight and six points respectively (a penalty save and a bonus point contributing to the first haul when he didn’t keep a clean sheet).

Historically, Fabianski has always been a great rotating keeper option. With West Ham needing the points and David Moyes being brought in to steady the ship, this should make Fabianski an attractive option once again, especially given the Double Gameweek 24 that West Ham enjoy.

Troy Deeney (£6.2m)

Nigel Pearson’s arrival at Vicarage Road has made Watford a team worth considering from an FPL stance and Deeney as their captain and talisman should not be overlooked.

Whilst he failed to return in Gameweek 21, his 12-point haul in Gameweek 20 shows that he has the potential to bring huge gains for brave FPL owners.

Deeney has the added advantage of being on penalties, which adds to his Fantasy appeal. If Watford continue to rebuild in 2020, Deeney or his teammate below could both be great options. 

Ismaila Sarr (£6.2m)

How I've risen up the rankings in FPL over the last two months

With three returns in the last four gameweeks, Sarr is the in-form Watford player of the moment.

Two goals, two assists, two clean sheets and two bonus points show the change in him, as he previously only had one attacking return up until Gameweek 18.

Sarr’s heat map, xG and xGI stats all look excellent and thus at £6.2m he could be an excellent pick, especially over the next three Gameweeks where Watford play teams that are currently conceding a lot of goals (Bournemouth, Spurs and Aston Villa).

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.8m)

At 18.3% owned, Aubameyang isn’t exactly a differential. However, he had been a difficult pick in recent weeks as a result of a lack of consistency in his returns.

Even with a blank in Gameweek 21, he has returns in two of the last three and, more importantly, Arsenal have improved dramatically since Mikel Arteta’s arrival and this should only continue over the coming weeks.

If Arteta can get Nicolas Pepe (£9.1m), Mesut Ozil (£7.2m), Alexandre Lacazette (£9.3m) etc playing at their best week-in, week-out, this will only strengthen Aubameyang’s appeal.

Aubameyang looks for me to be the premium striker who is about to go on a run and, therefore, with Harry Kane’s (£11.0m) hamstring injury, a straight swap from one side of north London to another looks like it could be a good idea. 

Ryan Sessegnon (£5.4m)

Spurs have a great deal of improvement to make and thus this one is very much a watching brief especially given that the Lilywhites play Liverpool in Gameweek 22.

However, with three consecutive starts, Sessegnon seems to be solidifying his place in the Spurs team. His positioning in the last two matches as well as the number of touches he has in the opponents’ half and in the final third, suggests that there is assist potential there.


Gameweek 22 feels like the tonic that we FPL managers need, with time to take stock, watch the FA Cup matches, get full updates on those injured in Gameweek 21 and make some forward planning decisions.

Knowing that Gameweek 24 is our first double of the season, rolling transfers, making transfers to free up funds and watching the markets will be vital in having the team you want.

For me, I want Sadio Mane (£12.3m) and Salah for their double and thus I need to free some money or at least plan where the cash to upgrade Alli to Mane will come from now.

I have £2.4m in the bank but this means I still need another £1.3m to make the transfer achievable. Ideally. I would have liked to move Toby Alderweireld (£5.4m) to Djibril Sidibe (£5.3m) – however, this only saves me £0.1m so I’ll either need to make another transfer to move Sidibe to a cheaper player in a couple of weeks time or I move him to a cheaper player now to free the money in advance. Doing the latter is a risk as it means early compromises to my team, while doing the former means playing to use an additional transfer which may be useful or needed elsewhere.

Either way, the FA Cup break is the perfect opportunity to look at the stats and heatmaps and forward plan for Double Gameweek 24 as well as for the rest of the fixtures in January.

    Which option looks better, with 1ft 0.6 itb..

    A Maupay to Dcl
    B save ft, next gw Hendo + Maupay to Mcarthy + Ings with 2ft

    1. aborg
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 28 days ago

      B. I need to bring Ings in...I just can't ignore him anymore. Never knew he could sustain his form like this !

    2. yosim
      4 months, 28 days ago

      I would wait for B

  2. Zlatanzo
    4 months, 28 days ago

    Do people think that Holgate will keep his place? Looks like a solid Kelly replacement...

    1. OneTreeTwoStars
      4 months, 28 days ago

      Depends which formation they play, Sidibe is 1st choice LB

      1. Zlatanzo
        4 months, 28 days ago

        Holgate has been playing CB though... and Sidibe plays on the right

        1. Trophé Mourinho
          4 months, 28 days ago

          Hasnt Holgate played 4 different positions this season? Mr flexible

  3. aborg

    Guys I seem to be stuck in the 200k mark and although it's not bad, I still find myself in 16th place in my cash ML and just can't seem to climb the ladder.
    Can someone help me find the fault in my team please? The obvious one I can find is that I have no Ings but will bring him in GW 22.

    Ramsdale, Button
    Soyunchu, Lundstram, TAA, Kelly, Tomori
    KDB, Mane, Grealish, Alli, Martial
    Vardy, Rashford, Ayew

    Thanks to all.

    1. OneTreeTwoStars
      4 months, 28 days ago

      I also don’t have Ings

    2. sunzip14
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 28 days ago

      A) Alli+Tomori> Rich/Madds+Sidibe?
      B) Alli+Ayew> Rich/Madds+DCL?

    3. Trophé Mourinho
      4 months, 28 days ago

      Your weak points IMO are:
      Tomori
      Kelly
      Ayew
      Ramsdale

      Kelly, Ayew and Tomori dont normally start so thats not really a priority. Maybe do something will Ramsdale, I would say Henderson for the long run but not yet really as his fixtures bad but as soon as they go good again get him I reckon.
      How many transfers you got and cash? Sidibe and or dunk could be nice options.

      Not a bad team though, just be patient and correct the weaknesses in your xi to get the msot out of it. You will catch up gradually

      1. aborg
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 28 days ago

        Thanks for your time to send me your detailed opinion. Much appreciated.
        Ayew is the one I want to get rid of most actually but so hard to do so. I might also swap Tomori for Robertson by GW24.

        Currently I just have 1ft and 0.3 ITB so I would need to get rid of a big player like Alli to find the cash. What do you think?

        1. Trophé Mourinho
          4 months, 28 days ago

          Is your heart set on double pool defence for the double? A lot of people will be doing Rashford and Alli out to fund Salah. Not sure how much cash that would leave you, but can you then afford Ings or DCL or Deulofeu?

          You never really field Ayew do you, he can free up a lil bit of cash I guess but I dont think he is a priority when you probably going to need every transfer to be ready for 24.

          This week I would just save assuming you dont want to ship out Ramsdale.

          yw btw

          1. aborg
            • 3 Years
            4 months, 28 days ago

            I'll be open for the possibility of having Mane and Salah too...will do my HW 🙂

  4. sunzip14

    Rmwct please! 0.5 itb.

    Ryan
    TAA, Soy, Sidibe
    KDB, Mane, Maddison, Martial, Richarlison
    Vardy, DCL

    Button, VVD, Greenwood, Reid

    1. Roysgotnoboys
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 28 days ago

      Would probably want Ings on a WC...

    2. aborg
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 28 days ago

      Very balanced team. If you would want to go 3 up front you might need to sacrifice Richarlison or Maddison for Grealish and get a better forwarder instead of Greenwood.

      1. sunzip14
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 28 days ago

        Thinking of going heavy at the back instead and get Lunds after 24. A lot of defenders playing in attack so, not worried about their position. Need to try something different as Rank is in free fall.

        1. Zlatanzo
          4 months, 27 days ago

          I’m going with Martial myself, Norwich weaker defensively...

  10. Ajax Hamsterdam
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 28 days ago

    Maddison or richarlison ? Have vardy

    Thanks

    1. Trophé Mourinho
      4 months, 28 days ago

      Rich might be good, but Maddison is so much safer and feels like you could just keep him for the season, no one would keep Rich for the season.

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 28 days ago

        Cheers.

        1. Trophé Mourinho
          4 months, 28 days ago

          maybe if ahead, Maddison. If chasing then Rich

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 28 days ago

      I’m on Rich. See how the next 3-4 go and then I’ll drop back to Maddy I think

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 28 days ago

        Yep sounds good with that change of fixtures for Everton. Thanks

    3. Villa Velour
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Both

  11. Badger Badger Mushroom Mush…
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 28 days ago

    Which front 8 is better from GW23?

    Salah Mane KDB Richarlison Cantwell
    Vardy Jiménez Greenwood (442/352)

    Salah Mane KDB Grealish Cantwell
    Vardy Jiménez DCL (343)

    1. ResultatFar
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 28 days ago

      So Rich + Greenwood vs Grealish + DCL? I like the last option better

      1. yosim
        4 months, 28 days ago

        this

      2. Badger Badger Mushroom Mush…
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 28 days ago

        I wouldn’t look it at like that as I’ll be playing Cantwell, not Greenwood.

  12. Nightf0x
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 28 days ago

    In process to get salah in gw24, downgrade aurier to 4.3 def. Making salah exactly on 0.0 or get a cheaper def. And leave some value itb incase of any price change for salah before gw24

    1. sunzip14
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 28 days ago

      who is your 4.3 defender target?

      1. Villa Velour
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 28 days ago

        Bernardo might be worth looking at.

  13. jdp219

    • 3 Years
    4 months, 28 days ago

    2FTs, 0.4itb - open time suggestions beyond these.
    1) Tammy, Aurier > Ings, Holgate (prepping for Pool triple in dgw24)
    2) Alli, Aurier > Madds, Sidibe
    3) Aurier > Jack Stephens & roll

    Ryan, Button
    TAA, Aurier, Soyuncu, Lunds, Rico
    Mane, KDB, Alli, Grealish, Cantwell
    Tammy, Jimenez, Vardy

    1. ResultatFar

      3)

    2. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 5 Years

      B looks good. I'm in a similar ish position and doing alli and kilo to holgate and richarlison

      1. jdp219
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 28 days ago

        I like that one, too. But that’s not leaving a lot to work with for dgw24. Might just have to forego that, I suppose.

  14. SomeoneKnows

    any helps appreciated here lads:

    I'm thinking swapping out Tammy and Alli to DCL and Richarlison? (means I can swap out Rico for robertson next week and have a lpool trio ready for the double GW)

    current team:
    pop, button
    rico, kelly, soyuncu, taa, lundstrum
    madders, mane, de bruyne, alli, dendo
    vardy, ings, dcl

    2ft, 0.1itb

    1. sunzip14
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 28 days ago

      Plan sounds good.

    2. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 28 days ago

      I'd keep Tammy this gw

    DCL surely will raise before the FA cup game until Liverpool isn't he?

    1. Stram Dunk

      Very likely. He is currently at 98.8.

    Got 2FTs and a busy weekend ahead and it looks like Pope will drop so should I just make this move now? Got the exact cash without using another FT.

    Pope >> Fabianski

    Pope
    TAA • Soy • Lundy
    Salah • Mané • Richarli • KDB • Grealish
    Vardy • Maupay

    Martial is tempting this gw but then it means I have double utd attack at pool. Unless I bench martial and play cantwell home to Bournemouth but that feels wrong ...

    1. Holding Matip
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 28 days ago

      Cantwell is in arguably better form than Martial

    2. Trophé Mourinho
      4 months, 28 days ago

      you want to bring Martial in just for Norwich? Nah, Rash is enuf as you said imo based on Pool the following week

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 28 days ago

        Cheers

      2. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 28 days ago

        Fixtures after pool are.nice for utd though

  21. Klip Klopp
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 28 days ago

    Thoughts on either of these?

    A. Rashford + Alli —> DCL + Sterling. (Then eventually swap Sterling to Mane for the double game week?)
    OR
    B. Rashford + Alli —> DCL + Mane

    Both for a -4?

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 28 days ago

      I wouldn't lose rashford before.a home match to Norwich, especially not for a hit

      1. Klip Klopp
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 28 days ago

        ok cheers

      2. Yank Revolution
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 28 days ago

        I have.

    2. Stram Dunk
      4 months, 28 days ago

      Keep Rash this week

      1. Klip Klopp
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 28 days ago

        thanks

    3. Holding Matip
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 28 days ago

      Would be B for me

    4. Trophé Mourinho
      4 months, 28 days ago

      Wait a week or two? Rash will have Pool at home next week so you can take him out for that. I agree Alli out this week would be nice, but no one to move him to without Rash cash. Waiting avoids the -4 as well.
      Even next week you could just do Rash>DCL and make the Alli>Mane move later, who does Alli have after Pool?

      1. Klip Klopp
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 28 days ago

        Yeah this is all good advice actually, thank you. Alli has Watford away after Liverpool and then Norwich at home.
        I really want to move Alli out this weeknd but not sure who I can for his price. Maybe Maddison?

        1. Badger Badger Mushroom Mush…
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 28 days ago

          Richarlison

        2. Trophé Mourinho
          4 months, 28 days ago

          Im stuck with this as well, im going to do Alli>Mane for the double but it requires another move as well. No transfers left this week, so im stuck with Zaha and Alli for this week.

          If you did Alli>Maddison this week, wont you want to do Maddison>Mane for the double? If so is it going to cost you a hit?

    5. Yank Revolution
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 28 days ago

      B

  22. DannyDrinkVodka
    4 months, 28 days ago

    Anybody here think Fornals or Noble are worth a punt for DGW24?

    1. Stram Dunk
      4 months, 28 days ago

      not for me

    2. Trophé Mourinho
      4 months, 28 days ago

      Ah maybe Noble, only because to get Mane in means downgrading Zaha and I could just get Noble for a laugh. Its a funny move and I dont think its going to pay off but might do it. He has pens at least, I think he is maybe the best Wham option with those fixtures imo just because of pens. I dont have much hope tho 😀

    Afternoon all

    I’m planning on doing this move this week:
    Alli, Willems > Cantwell, Stephens (-4)

    To give me:
    4.3itb
    Guaita
    TAA, Soy, Lunds
    Mané, KDB, Maddison, Martial
    Vardy, Ings, DCL
    (McGovern) (Cantwell, Stephens, Rico)

    Then in GW23:
    Martial, Guaita > Salah, Foster (-4)

    Looks like a decent plan? I’m hoping to hold off until after Cup matches for moves. Worst case scenario I’ll have to go for a cheaper keeper.

    Cheers

  24. Better luck next year

    KDB out from GW25? I know he can deliver against but just to tempting with Salah Mane double for that great run of fixtures...

    1. FPL Pillars
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 28 days ago

      KDB is a season keeper. I do not like to play to Hokey Cokey with big fish

      I’m thinking this too mate keeps a nice team structure too

    3. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 28 days ago

      Pretty much locked to go with this plan unless Salah fails to perform well

    4. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 28 days ago

      At your own risks 🙂

  25. dshv

    Kane for DCL (-4)

    Si or no ?

    1. CrouchDown
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 28 days ago

      Depends if you need money to get Pool assets. Would go for Auba/Tammy/Jimi otherwise

  26. CrouchDown
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 28 days ago

    G2G for this GW or do Martial > Mane(-4)?

    Pope

    TAA Soy Lundstram

    Salah Maddison Grealish Martial

    Vardy DCL Ings

    Subs: Button, Kelly Stephens Williams

    1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Afternoon, Does anyone know of a tool/source that shows the most consistent players in FPL?
    For example a table that shows the number of blank scoring weeks each player has had so far or a list of players on a points streak?
    Much appreciated!
