Who are the best West Ham players to sign for Double Gameweek 24?

West Ham assets have been largely overlooked in the build-up to Double Gameweek 24.

With Liverpool and their host of options for the Triple Captain chip dominating the debate, the Hammers have slipped under the radar.

The question is whether or not David Moyes’ men deserve to stay there.

We are answering that question in this latest article, comparing the Hammers under their new/old manager against Manuel Pellegrini’s start to 2019/20, as well as ranking the Hammers’ best assets against the rest of the league.

As this article uses data from the Fantasy Football Scout Members Area, only those with valid packages will be able to access it in full.

Has Moyes improved West Ham?

      Anyone shipping Abraham for DCL (or similar)? Worth it or foolhardy?!

          fixtures too suggest is a good move..

        Thinking of punting on Haller. Have the exact cash:

        Rashford + Kelly 》》 Haller + VVD for -4

        Do it tonight?

        1. Lumberjack
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Haller really is a punt. Might work though.

          1. ZeBestee
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Yeah, missed a few chances against Everton, feel he is going to be this coming gw star.

        Trent Triple captain.

        1. Lumberjack
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Don't see why not.

            It sounds good in theory - I've seen two cleans sheets and an assist in one of them predicted somewhere. In reality he's likely to keep only 1 clean sheet though.

            1. Lebowski85

              7 on the spin! Tighter than a ducks arse aswell. Plus I reckon Mane won't play both games

      4. Stef rocks

        1 month, 5 days ago

        All non TC do you really think you will have a better occasion to use the chip this season ?!

        1) You have the option to play it now for one of the top scoring players for probably currently the best club in the world (Pool didn’t have a double GW last 2 season)

        2) Even if Pool have a Double GW later in the season they might be champions at that time so rotation is highly likely (especially if they move forward in CL)

        3) It is the perfect double GW because basically there are 6 days difference between both Pool matches. Usually other double GW are 2-3 days between matches, so rotation is becoming less likely

        4) who else would you use it on? - do you think MCI players will play both double GW matches (if they eventually have such Gw)?

        After all above said my TC is active, the only dilemma is who to use it on?

        Any other thought are appreciated ofcourse 🙂

        1. V-2 Schneiderlin
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          my main concern is Salah and Mane, as in which one is going to get the points? I miss the old days of Aguero TC!

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Im worried that they are both away games, West Ham have been tighter at home since Moyes arrival, Wolves will score...plus Vardy looks likely to have a DGW if Leicester beat Villa in the EFL cup. Im not saying that I won't play my TC on either TAA or Mane....

        3. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • 3 Years

          Agree. It’s going down. Salah TC I think

          salah (TC) for me

        5. HashAttack
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          I'm in the lead of my MLs and I prefer to chase as opposed to being chased ... keeping the TC back for later in the season is another weapon

      5. NachoMan

        Anything worth a free transfer here?

        Ryan
        TAA, Robbo, Creswell
        Salah, Tross, KDB, Maddison
        Vardy, DCL, Jimi

        Bench : Ramsdale, Traore, Lund, Rico

        How to sort this bunch?

        Ryan Button
        TAA Lund Soy Dunk Kelly
        Salah Mane KDB Sarr* Cantwell
        Vardy Rashford* DCL

        2 FT, 0.3 in bank.

        15.4m to spend on Rashford + Sarr replacements (no Ings or Brighton)
        Don't mind a hit.

        Cheers in advance

            Spurs a mess atm.

              • 8 Years
              1 month, 5 days ago

              Fair enough. I’d love to have Son in my team. Prob Grealish/ Martial and Deeney then.

        2. DA Minnion
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Martial and deeney.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

          Martial and Deeney

          1. DA Minnion
            • 7 Years

            Jinx

        4. Lumberjack
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Ings is great value I think, with good fixtures. Could then upgrade Sarr to Martial, might be a good shout with Rash out.

          1. TorresMagic™
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Ings 50/50 to start then Pool isn't great imo. After that is though.

        5. ZeBestee
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Haller and Snoddy. Nothing to loose.

        6. Mo Salah No Mane
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Ayew and Son maybe?
          Not sure if you want Aguero now and then maybe take a hit and get maybe williams and a cheap mid and get rid of Soy

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

            No spurs then
            Aguero Douglas Luis and Williams and lose Soy as well for a hit

        7. TorresMagic™

          • 10 Years

          Cheers all, one more day of pressers then decide I guess.

        8. Stef rocks
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Mahrez Ings?!

          1. Stef rocks
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Also you could take 1week punt on Haller and then reasses

      7. Soto Ayam
          1 month, 5 days ago

          If mane has scored 58 away from home and Salah 41, can someone please tell me why am i, and seemingly many others, so intent on TC'ing him?

          1. TorresMagic™
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Because it could be even after the GW.

          2. _Ninja_
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Salah on pens with Milner out injured. People looking for a differential as Mane well owned.

            1. Soto Ayam
                1 month, 5 days ago

                Yeah, both valid points

            2. sandman58
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 5 days ago

              I think TAA is a better option for triple captain
              Based on the strong probability that Liverpool keep 2 clean sheets meaning 36 points at the very least

              1. Soto Ayam
                  1 month, 5 days ago

                  For sure against West ham, but wolves? However, they're previous 7 cs's suggest otherwise! I have considered it

              2. HashAttack
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 5 days ago

                Those figures include
                Mane v sot (13) gw1 and v avl (12) gw 11 - otherwise its 33 in 8 = 4.125
                Salah v bou (13) gw16 - otherwise its 26 in 7 = 3.71

                Taking each ones Highest + Average gives 17 points for Mane and 16 or 17 points for Salah
                These appear to be good single gw figures but poor dgw ones

                1. Soto Ayam
                    1 month, 5 days ago

                    Thanks. Certainly food for thought. Personally I still wonder if we consider Salah through rose-tinted glass with memories of 2 seasons ago.

                    1. _Ninja_
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 9 Years
                      1 month, 5 days ago

                      Only Vardy has a higher ppg this season (by 0.1) and Salah hasnt even had a great season.

                    2. HashAttack
                      • 2 Years
                      1 month, 5 days ago

                      I had the choice of Salah or Mane this week and thought Salah was the one with more mojo at the moment
                      If I had dug into the figures beforehand I would have been more tempted to go with Mane

                      Watching the Spurs match, I did think Mane was doing a lot more team work, which gives the points edge to Salah

              3. RAFA THE GAFFA
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 5 days ago

                If Pool get another DGW then they will have likely won the league by then, the games will be close together and the big two will only get a game each.

                1. sandman58
                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 5 days ago

                  Strike now while the iron is hot

                2. HashAttack
                  • 2 Years
                  1 month, 5 days ago

                  It could be interesting at the end of the season to check how many home sgw Mane or Salah outscore what they do in gw24

                  Either can easily score 15 points in a game at Anfield - a return of 20 on the dgw will be a good score ... so that would boil down to a 5 point bonus for the TC

                  1. RAFA THE GAFFA
                    • 3 Years
                    1 month, 5 days ago

                    Agree in some ways but your maths is a little off.

                    15 * 3 = 45
                    20 * 3 = 60!

                    1. HashAttack
                      • 2 Years
                      1 month, 5 days ago

                      but if you were to captain the player anyway ...
                      15x2 = 30
                      20x2 = 40

                      Its +10 for the captain - the TC is only giving you an additional +5

                • 7 Years
                1 month, 5 days ago

                Could Martial be on pens with rash out?

                1. TorresMagic™
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • Has Moderation Rights
                  • 10 Years
                  1 month, 5 days ago

                  Probably.

                  1. DA Minnion
                    • 7 Years
                    1 month, 5 days ago

                    Think I'll get him in.

                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 5 days ago

                  With Rash and Pogba out
                  Martial will take the pens

                3. Tony Martial
                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 5 days ago

                  He is.. as long as Mata isn’t on the pitch (and even then it’s a 50/50 chance..)

                      Yeah. I think martial could be good.

                    I'm waiting to see if Williams keeps playing for a few more but it's a good punt. I'm getting B next probably, good price and nailed

                    Worth swapping Rico > Holgate this week? Do we think Holgate plays?

                    A) Salah
                    B) Mane
                    C) TAA

                    Thinking A but the temptation to do C is appealing.

                    Thanks in advance

                      I’m starting to think C is the correct play but I’m not brave enough

                        Have both Salah and Mane. Who would you triple captain?

                          TCing this week is the most bate thing I could think of.

                          Every team, that aint dead, will be putting the armband on a pool player and potentially own the power 3.(TAA,Mane,Salah)

                          Captaining to get 1/3 additional points will not help you gain the advantage on your rivals.

                            1 month, 5 days ago

                            This logic is absolutely woeful

                              I played my TC on a Man City DGW last year and put on Sane who was scoring well going into it. He was benched and didn't play the first match and came on for 27 mins in the 2nd.

                              3pts.

                              Aguero on the other hand was injured coming into it which was why I didn't take the risk. Played both and delivered 57pts....

                              Salah. TC. Done

                        Just been shocked at the stats for my highest scoring players (on FPL Statistico) ... just 3 matches for Aguero and he is up at no 3

                        Player - Played / Points
                        Vardy - 12 / 148
                        KDB - 16 / 111
                        Aguero 3 / 82
                        Rashford 12 / 79
                        Tammy 14 / 78
                        Lunds 14 / 70
                        Maddy 13 / 70

                          1 month, 5 days ago

                          I guess the moral is who cares if Aguero is benched ... another bucket load of points will be around soon enough

                          My best ever season I had Kun for just 4 games and he got me around 110 pts.

                          depends on which midfielder you are selling as that determines the price point of the FWD that you will need to replace a) or b) with

                          I'd just sell KDB if you have him

                        Quick thought on TC

                        Liverpool are dominant in results but their relatively modest goal difference also tells a tale.

                        It hasn’t been - with one obvious exception - a season of dominant Liverpool player performances.

                        Two more solid 2-0 2-1 type performances? DGW but I’m failing to get excited

                        1. pingissimus
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                          1 month, 5 days ago

                          Disconnect between Liverpool the team and individual returns?

                        2. Eat my goal!

                          Clearly they were the better side against Utd but equally gifted the closing goal.

                          West Ham is the game to give encouragement

                        3. JamieNumber4

                          1 month, 5 days ago

                          They could’ve easily beaten Utd by 5 or 6 but for some bad luck and dodgy refereeing. I wouldn’t count on low scoring games this coming GW.

                        4. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                          1 month, 5 days ago

                          Anything could happen

                          They won 4-0 away to Leicester

                          Mane & Salah got 9 points between them in that match

                          This game is mental and trying to predict individual results is close to impossible - it’s a bit more feasible to try to predict the general gist of larger blocks of fixtures, but even then can shock and surprise very regularly
