Fixtures

When the Blank Gameweek and Double Gameweek fixtures could take place

The first Double Gameweek of the season is just around the corner, with Liverpool and West Ham United enjoying two fixtures in Gameweek 24 thanks to the postponement of their Premier League clash in December.

It won’t be the last bit of disruption to the fixture schedule this season, of course.

We’ve already had a mini-Blank Gameweek in December because of Liverpool’s involvement in the FIFA Club World Cup and we are likely only six weeks from another, with the final of the EFL Cup set to be contested on the same weekend as Gameweek 28 in the Premier League.

Blank Gameweek 28

The two Premier League games postponed in Gameweek 28 are Manchester City v Arsenal and Aston Villa v Sheffield United.

We are still yet to learn when those games will now take place.

Blank Gameweek 31

Gameweek 31 will be a blank for some top-flight teams, with the FA Cup quarter-finals set to take place on the same weekend.

Given that the international break immediately follows these games, there is no chance of any postponed fixtures being held in the following midweek.

Blank/Double Gameweek 34
2019/20 FFS Cups are now open for entry

Gameweek 34 looks set to be an unusual one.

While some teams will possibly be without a Premier League match due to the clash with the FA Cup semi-finals, there is also a free midweek afterwards.

It could potentially end up being a Double Gameweek for a handful of sides, then, while other clubs may have just one or indeed no match at all.

That will all depend on earlier cup-influenced postponements.

Double Gameweek 37

Any outstanding fixtures would then be contested in Double Gameweek 37, given that all the other midweek dates that follow scheduled Premier League fixtures are affected by European club competition or the March international break.

There are other possibilities beyond that (Triple Gameweeks etc)- but we’ll keep it fairly simple for now.

Other Fixtures

Forward-planning is not just about navigating the blanks and doubles, of course, but factoring in which top-flight sides have a congested fixture schedule around their league games.

Involvement in European club competition could have an impact on rotation from Gameweek 26 onwards: the two Manchester clubs, Liverpool, Spurs, Chelsea, Wolves and Arsenal recommence their UEFA Champions League/Europa League campaigns in mid-to-late February.

The winter break should offer some respite for Premier League sides, although it will be tough to navigate from a Fantasy perspective as the Gameweek 26 fixtures are spread out over ten days.

A dozen teams are in action a week or so after the FPL deadline for Gameweek 26, which means that Fantasy managers will have to keep their fingers crossed for injuries not occurring the interim.




We’ve cobbled together a calendar for the remaining Gameweeks of the 2019/20 season, though in some cases (Premier League fixtures from Gameweek 29 onwards, FA Cup from the fifth round onwards) the dates are subject to change due to the whims of the relevant television broadcasters.

It should also be stressed that the future Blank/Double Gameweeks after Gameweek 24 have not yet been confirmed by the Premier League and won’t be for a little while yet – but this would appear to be the itinerary at this early stage:

Early Thoughts on Chip Strategy

There’ll be more focus on chip strategy once we have ascertained the fixtures in the bigger Blank/Double Gameweeks to come but there’ll be lots of Fantasy managers considering using their Triple Captain chip in the first Double Gameweek of the season – the deadline for which is next Tuesday.

FPL bosses haven’t had the chance to deploy this chip on a Liverpool asset since 2015/16 and there will be a huge temptation to use it on Mohamed Salah (£12.3m) or Sadio Mane (£12.4m), among others.

Such is the uncertainty about future postponements, then we can’t really say whether there’ll be a better chance to use it in 2019/20.

Those who still have their Bench Boost chips will of course be eyeing up Double Gameweek 34 or 37 but there is, unlike last season, some breathing room in between the blanks and doubles for those who have already used it.

The Free Hit chip could potentially be used in Blank Gameweek 31 but, given that we will have a little bit of time to prepare for it, that set of fixtures could feasibly be navigated around with careful use of free transfers (and perhaps a hit).

When to use the second Wildcard is another discussion point and again, once the Blank/Double Gameweek picture becomes clearer, we will revisit the various options for this chip – some point after Blank Gameweek 31 is perhaps the preferred option at this stage.

    B: Robbo + Son + DCL
    C: Aurier + Mane + DCL
    D: Aurier + Martial + Firmino + 1.4m (to upgrade Grealish at some stage)

      Ndidi out puts me off Vardy - I expect him to return but haul is less likely

    Am I crazy for considering captaining Abraham this week? 12 shots in the box in his last 4, 3 big chances, 3 attacking returns in 3.

    Newcastle bottom of the league for shots on target, 3rd worst for shots in the box, joint worst for goals conceded in the last 4 GWs...

    1. Captain Casual
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Sounds good, he has good away form

        What has NC attacking form got to do with capping Tammy

            No worries, not too clear. Newcastle stats are for shots / goals conceded.

              Think Tammy is better than Vardy as a prospect but there are still better options from City

                Only have KDB and then it's playing Pep-roulette if I consider getting any others. Not to mention, I don't think Palace will roll over like Villa did although I do see a return for KDB in this game.

        Nope. Anytime goalscorer odds:
        Vardy 1.88
        Tammy 1.91

        There are more question marks with Vardy imo.

    2. Captain Casual
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Who would you rather play this week?

        A) soy away to burn or
        B) Lund away to arse

        ?

        Thanks

          Easy A for me

        2. FOO FIGHTER
            1 month, 6 days ago

            No Auba, play Lundstram.

            Leicester not looking tight without Ndidi.

            1. Captain Casual
                1 month, 6 days ago

                Kinda thinking this, plus Lund offers more attacking threat

                  Looks good.

                  Feeling confident with Salah (c)? I wanted to give him the armband but was talked out of it.

                  1. FOO FIGHTER
                      1 month, 6 days ago

                      Yeah, happy with capping Salah at home vs UTD.

                    Team is good but captain choice not so much when there are 2 obvious choices who can easily haul. Salah never scored against United before.

                3. Lignja
                  • 2 Years
                  1 month, 6 days ago

                  Plan was to save this week and do Abraham, Traore, Rico to Ings, Vvd, Hayden -4

                  Pope, Martin
                  Taa, Soyuncu, Lundstram, Rico, Kelly
                  Mane, Kdb, Son, Traore, Dendoker
                  Abraham, Rashford, Vardy

                  Should i do

                  A. Rash to Ings now and than Rico to Robertson next week (exact cahs) need Ings before price rice

                  B. Rash to Ings this week+ Son to Salah next week
                  C. Something else

                  Bottomed on the last page:

                  Here is what we know from Ben Crellin’s excellent spreadsheet:

                  In GW 31, the following teams have a >50% chance of blanking: Chelsea, Man U, Spurs, West Ham, Man City, Sheffield, Liverpool and CP. Ben’s sheet predicts roughly 5 blank games that week.

                  In 28, Man City and Arsenal are 88% chance to blank.

                  Figuring out what might happen in 34 is nearly impossible at this stage.

                  31 could be really ugly

                      Probably, but 34 could have some gems. Won’t know for a while.

                    Looks like Aguero / KDB TC in gw 37 - wat / NEW .... last 3 gameweeks for MCI could be BOU / wat & NEW / NOR

                    I'm assuming MCI and LEI will get through to the final and their gw28 fixtures will need to be postponed
                    (MCI should beat Man U and Fulham / Lei should beat AVL and Brentford)

                    I take it from the article that those games MCI / ARS and NOR / LEI will then be in gw34
                    There would be dgw for the 4 clubs if none of them, or their opponents are in the FA SF
                    MCI v new, ARS v lei, WAT v Nor

                    MCI - NEW / ARS
                    LEI - ars / nor
                    ARS - LEI / mci
                    NOR - wat / LEI

                    The second matches will take place but the first ones could be postponed to gw37 .. potentially

                    MCI - wat / NEW
                    LEI - tot / ars
                    ARS - avl / LEI

                      forgot to factor in FA QF playing gw31 ... presumably postponed matches are played in the order that they are postponed

                    A) (3-5-2)
                    Ryan / (Button)
                    TAA, Robertson, Söyüncü (Lundstram, Holgate)
                    Mane, KDB, Grealish, Maddison, Richarlison
                    Vardy, Ings (Greenwood)

                    or

                    B) (3-5-2)
                    Ryan / (Button)
                    TAA, Robertson, Lundstram (Ogbonna, Gibson)
                    Mane, KDB, Mahrez, Maddison, Richarlison
                    Vardy, Ings (Greenwood)

                      That’s a tough one. B is the better side, but A gives you bench cover if someone doesn’t play. Mahrez certainly isn’t nailed every week, so I would want some bench cover.

                    Current team:

                    Fabianski Button
                    TAA Soy Lundy Kelly Rico
                    Salah KdB Martial Grealish Hayden
                    Vardy Rash Jimi

                    2FT and 1,6m in bank.

                    Which plan is best?
                    A. Fab, Martial and Rash to Ryan Mane and DCL (-4). Next week save or address future problems
                    B. Fab and Martial to Ryan and Mahrez. Next week Mahrez and Rash to Mane and DCL for -4
                    C. Fab and Rash to Ryan and Tammy. Next week Tammy and Martial to Mane and DCL for -4

                    Thanks.

                      Is the signing of Pussetto a threat to Sarr? Both play on the right wing.

                      Cant decide.

                      Maupay has the fixtures, but form might be bad.

                      Dcl has some form.

                      A: maupay

                      B: DCL

                      Yes or No:

                      Rashford + Aurier -> Ings + Robbertson (-4)

                        Maybe just Rashford to ings

                        Good move
                        Aurier to Robbo can be made next GW too though

                        Soyuncu. Burnley is in terrible form, CS chances aren’t even comparable and Lundsram’s attacking stats in away games isn’t great either.

                        So after reading this article, i think i am going to TC Mane in GW 24 now.
                        Plan for 31
                        FH 34
                        BB 37

                        Hmmmm

                          1 month, 6 days ago

                          FH 31 looks miles best option

                            1 month, 6 days ago

                            Maybe.
                            I hate BGW. Low scoring mostly

                            1 month, 6 days ago

                            Maybe. Maybe not. Won’t know much until 5th round draw later this month. FWIW, Ben Crellin suggested on twitter this AM that if there are 3,4,5 or 6 blanks he will FH. 2 or 7 is tough. Apparently, the math says there wont be more than 7 blanks, and the expectation is roughly 5, though, I’ve not crunched the numbers myself.

                            1 month, 6 days ago

                            Bigger upside to FH in a double gameweek

                          1 month, 6 days ago

                          That is my plan at the moment as well, except TC is TAA.

                        Vardy to aguero was a move which should have been done a while ago

                        After Leicester struggles and vardy not quite in the form he was and city absolutely on fire, vardy to aguero is making more sense by the day

                          Disagree.

                          For a GW or two maybe but not in the long run. Aguero will miss a lot of the games due to rotation with Jesus.

                          Missed the boat. One more game then a rest is perfectly possible.

                        If Leicester reach the Carabao Cup final, they'll likely play the rescheduled match against Norwich in midweek GW29 (March 10-11).

                        This would mean their double would be (AVL, nor)

                          How is this possible ?
                          If it is,why hasn't anyone else spoken about it ??

                            They have, seen somewhere (think twitter).

                            Their GW28 fixture would be cancelled. They can't play in midweek following EFL final because of FA Cup 5th round. They won't play it the midweek before final as City play Real and they usually put re-arranged fixtures together. They'll fill up the next available midweek date which is 10/11 of march

                          Unfortunate we will not know pre week 24 double games but that certainly would be great option.

                          GW28 fixture will be postponed but it will be either to 34 or 38, not 29 even if the schedule allows it.

                            GW28 will be postponed if Leicester reaches final*

                          Maybe, but there is only a 57% chance currently that they blank in 28. If they do, their match could still be in 28 (lots of permutations there, but basically they need to get bounced from the FA Cup), 29, 34 or 37.

                          Possible, but not likely. It will probably be thrown in with the BGW31 fixtures for scheduling in GW34 or GW37. If that does work (because Leicester are still in the FA Cup), they will probably then look to schedule it in a midweek where there are CL/Europa League fixtures (normally verboten). As neither Leicester nor Norwich are in Europe, there will be plenty of options. Man City v Arsenal though is a much bigger challenge.

                        1 FT, 1.1 ITB. Help greatly appreciated!

                        Ryan
                        TAA, Holgate, Lundstram
                        Salah, Mane, KDB, Cantwell
                        Vardy, Ings, Rashford*

                        (Woodman, Traore, Kelly, Simpson)

                        A) Traore -> Sarr (hope Rashford back for BUR)
                        B) Rashford -> DCL (Kelly & Traore -> Son & Williams next week)
                        C) Something Else
                        D) Save FT

                        With Rashford (and Traore) presumably a doubt and Holgate potentially rested I dont want to save FT and risk not fielding 11. Currently on A although quite like the look of B as I will be priced out if I don't make this transfer today/tomorrow.

                        Cheers

                        [Paul Hirst] Rashford underwent examinations at United’s Carrington training base today. United are hopeful that their top scorer will be available [Sunday] provided that he does not feel too stiff to train over the next 24 hours.

                            Ole will make him play even if he got beheaded. Really running him into the ground now.

                              It’s not really an injury that will get significantly worse with playing other than the pain. If his pain threshold is high enough, it’s normal for him to play.

                        Got 2FT and pretty much set on Fabianski > McCarthy for the first one. The question is whether I should to Tammy > Ings also? I need to do that this week or next to fund Soyuncu > Robbo. Is Ings set to rise tonight?

                                Gl with that is there not more teams playing a double gwk that week? Defo a bench boost if so.

                        Is this good to go (llineup, bench order, transfers):

                        Henderson

                            Nervous that Grealish and Dunk might cancel each other out though... still not 100% set on bringing Lewis Dunk in just for that reason...

                            How you looking for this weekend mate?
