The Complete Guide to Scout’s tips and advice for FPL Double Gameweek 29

Welcome to the Fantasy Football Scout Guide to Gameweek 29. As most of you will no doubt be aware…

It’s a Double Gameweek!

Both Arsenal and Manchester City have two fixtures in Gameweek 29 – double the chance of scoring points!

Their Gameweek 28 encounter – postponed due to the EFL Cup final – has been rearranged for Wednesday. Before facing off at the Etihad Stadium, Arsenal entertain West Ham this weekend while the champions travel to local rivals Manchester United.

Also, following the midweek FA Cup results, we now have a better idea of how the Blank and Double Gameweeks are shaping up. For starters, there will be just four matches played in Gameweek 31.

Read on to find out how this might affect your team. And if you still need time to ready your troops and appoint your captain, you have until 11:30 GMT.

Armband Dilemma

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would appear to be the standout pick from the two teams playing twice. 

The most expensive Gabonese player of all time is in good form with three goals in his last two matches. He tops our Rate My Team tool and has garnered 48% of the vote in our captaincy poll.

Talked up by Neale in our video outlining the Best Captaincy Picks, his goal conversion rate since Mikel Arteta took charge is 33.3% – the best in the division. 

However David’s Captain Sensible article highlights some enticing alternatives. A weakness in West Ham’s defence could benefit Nicolas Pépé:

There is a heavy concentration of assists given up on the left side of the Hammers’ back-line, the right side of their opponents’ attack, where Pépé, with his impressive creative statistics, will likely be operating on Saturday afternoon.

– David

And as Pro Pundit Holly (aka FFCommunity_) notes in her look at February’s underlying statistics, Pépé has three assists from three fixtures, having created three big chances for his teammates.

Indeed Arsenal’s record signing also gets the Lateriser12 seal of approval:

I see Pépé as a bit of a flat-track bully with set-pieces in his locker, making him a potentially explosive pick with a nice upside.

– Lateriser12

Finally let’s not overlook perennial captain favourite Mohamed Salah, who made a late substitute appearance in Liverpool’s midweek FA Cup defeat:

The Egyptian has been the most reliable Liverpool asset at home in recent weeks, and Bournemouth’s defence arguably looks worse than West Ham’s.

– David

Scout Picks and Team News

Despite only playing once this Gameweek, there’s a place in the Scout Picks for FPL’s most expensive asset. 

He’s joined in the select XI by the leading points scorer in FPL, Kevin De Bruyne.

The Belgian – who delivered a season-high 19 points against the Gunners back in Gameweek 17 – missed his side’s FA Cup tie against Sheffield Wednesday with a shoulder complaint. However Pep Guardiola sounded cautiously optimistic yesterday afternoon:

He’s getting better. Today we didn’t train, tomorrow will prove, I spoke this morning with the physio and he said that he feels better. Not perfect, but better. We’ll see.

– Pep Guardiola on Kevin De Bruyne

Although, as David observed, Guardiola is perhaps unlikely to risk the former Chelsea player with two starts in quick succession.

Elsewhere, as Rotation’s Alter Ego disclosed in his team news round-up, Alisson has been ruled out of the weekend’s action with a hip injury. Owners of the popular double-Liverpool defence discussed how this affects their teams.

Although the Reds are still top of G-Whizz’s clean sheet odds for Gameweek 29.

For more injury updates, including details on the crisis facing Chelsea, have a read of Neale’s press conferences recap. Further in-depth information is given in the predicted line-ups.

Full Portion of Chips?

With the short notice for Gameweek 29 and the reduced number of fixtures in Gameweek 31, many have been considering their chip strategies. 

Whether you’ve all your chips remaining or even if you’ve had a little nibble already, there is, as NOMONEY pointed out, a chip strategy for everybody!

Depending on your situation, you may favour ‘The Jarvish Strategy’ or even the ‘FPL Virgin Strategy’. Neale set the scene and explored various scenarios in his thoughtful piece on chip deployment. While our Scoutcast trio of Joe, Az, and Pranil (aka Lateriser12) aired their views in our regular video broadcast.

Rather than examining goals, shots, or big chances to highlight players for your team, community writer RichP_LFC turns to Fantasy Points For and Against. Breaking down defence and attack by position, his Double Gameweek special provides food for thought, especially for managers using Free Hit or Wildcard.

He takes the same approach to put together his Gameweek 31 Dream Team.

Jules Breach successfully played her Wildcard in Gameweek 28, as Greyhead reported in The Great and The Good, and has averted her downward slide. Five of the 12 elite managers are now in the top 100k as we enter the ‘business end’ of the season.

If you don’t have your Wildcard available, or would rather save it for later, Pro Pundit Sam (aka Sam FPLFamily) was on hand with sage advice in case you are contemplating a hit:

Just think about whether it’s worth the risk for the player that you want to bring in, whether they’re likely to return more than the player you’re gonna take out AND the minus points hits that you’ve got to take to do it.

– Pro Pundit Sam

For those pondering a transfer, Pro Pundit Tom Freeman (aka avfc82) has been on a good run with his differential picks. This week he singled out Ismaïla Sarr, Miguel Almirón, and Phil Foden. Sarr played a part in all three of Watford’s goals against Liverpool and benefits from a guaranteed fixture in Gameweek 31.

TheFantasyFreÆK backs up the selection of the Senegalese in his Gameweek review:

No midfielder in the league has recorded as many shots inside the box and big chances as Watford’s Ismaïla Sarr in the games he has started under Nigel Pearson. He has the pedigree to be FPL gold whenever he starts. At that price, I think he is easily the best midfielder to own.

Heraclitus a little flick, here he comes on the far post, Socrates is there, Socrates heads it in! Socrates has scored! The Greeks are going mad, the Greeks are going mad!

      Great team..why do you want your captain choice to ruin it though?

      1. West Hammered
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Feel like taking some risks but I could still change to Auba

        1. lilmessipran
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          You should imo..would be really surprised if Mahrez gets more than 100-120 mins

          1. West Hammered
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 26 days ago

            Part of it is me being a West Ham fan I don't want Auba to bang but I should probably ignore that

    3. nerd_is_the_werd
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Thought KDB wasn't playing this weekend...

        1. West Hammered
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Should at least play Wednesday but hopefully both

    4. Ronny Sandstone
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      If you didn't own KDB would you bring him in still? already have Auba thats it for DGW players, feel I'm not taking advantage!

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Nope, not right now.

      2. Tony Martial

        The question I need answering too

        Exact same situation as you!

        1. Ronny Sandstone
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Hmmm, I'm really stuck on this, if I was using a WC/FH I'd go for it, trouble is none of my rivals have KDB but they tend to make moves early, so possibly got him in before injury news?!

          Hardest week of the season so far this one.

          Cheers guys.

      3. Holmes
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Nope, waiting till 33

              He's a doubt, he's not been ruled out.

          Traoré is “fit and available”

          Start him or Fleck?

          1. Tonyawesome69

            Traore

              Thanks Tony

            Fleck has returned in like, 4 matches this entire season. I don't like him as a pick.

            1. Tony Martial
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 26 days ago

              Yeah, not the greatest but @ that price can’t go too wrong

              Will have a DGW or 2 soon aswell

              1. Hazz
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                4 points is better than 2 I guess.

                  That is Zaha's casual A + YC without CS.

                I think he's quite expensive for his returns personally, wish I never bought him. Hayden for 0.7m less would've been better.

          Thoughts on:
          Dendo -> Saka

          If it means dropping maddison to then play Saka.

          A)Yes
          B)No

          Leaning to no and save ft

          1. West Hammered
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 26 days ago

            No

            Are you FHing in gw31? If not save your transfer for then. What would you do in my position (below)?

            1. jason_ni

              No fh nah.. can get 9 without any hits
              Cheers

        • istanbul05

          No easy route to Auba, would I be stupid to save my FT? £1.5m ITB with WC and FH remaining...

          Ryan
          TAA, VVD, Stevens
          Salah, KDB, Mahrez, Fernandes
          Jimenez, Ings, DCL.

            Save and you will win next week

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 26 days ago

            I’m in the same position as you. I’m leaning towards saving the free transfer, ignoring the dgw and captaining salah.

            What would you do in my position (below)?

          3. BobbyDoesNotLook
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 26 days ago

            What about transferring Ryan and planning for bgw? I am doing Ryan > Foster and hope a cs against Palace this gw.

          4. Utopsis
              2 months, 26 days ago

              Save. Everyone seems to assume ARS will batter WHU.

              MCI vs WHU was the same 3 GWs weeks ago but they showed impressive resilience, also against LIV (and then dispatched SOU). ARS creaked against Olympiakos.

              I'm less convinced.

          5. The Hoff
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 26 days ago

            Would be very grateful for your views on this:

            A. Dendoncker-> Saka (leaves me with 4 GW31 player so would have to FH then)
            B. Take a hit to get in get in Auba (would probably have to get rid of Vardy/Maddison for Auba/Saka, not sure there’s another way to do it)
            C. Save transfer (then have 5 players playing for GW31 plus an extra transfer)

            Hendo
            TAA/ Robertson / Soy / Stephens
            Salah / KdB / Maddison
            Vardy / Jiminez / Ings

            McCarthy/ Cantwell / Fernandez / Dendoncker

            1ft, 0.2 itb
            WC and BB left In the bank

            1. jason_ni
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 26 days ago

              It all depends on if you want to save the fh
              Wouldn't do a, similar to me, who are you dropping?

              B could be good, but there is risk in losing vardy and maddison, those 2 out for a hit not sure it's worth it.

              Leaning towards C, but yeah, it's a tricky call.

            2. JabariParkersEyelid
                2 months, 26 days ago

                Save it and do something like soyuncu maddison to Doherty sarr week after. Not sure if your purchase prices would allow that exact move though.

              • istanbul05
                • 6 Years
                2 months, 26 days ago

                Probably go for C if I was in your position. Maddison to one of the Silvas if you fancied a punt?

            3. Maddamotha
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 26 days ago

              Salah or Auba captain?

                Auba - What would you do in my position (Above)?

            4. Muscout
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              2 months, 26 days ago

              Any Ars or City defenders worth it for a hit?

              Lundstram to Mendy / Walker for -4?

              1. cjk17
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 26 days ago

                I’m going for Leno. Tough city game but should hopefully get save points

                  2 months, 26 days ago

                  Normally, yes. But wouldn't you rather save it for a DGW?

                      Thanks. Switched to Salah when Mane was injured but wasnt convinced. Now the extra money from switching has come in useful!

                      Probably save... not sure Auba will do anything against city

                      What would you do in my position (above)?

                    Thoughts on these guys? Basically A or B, but B requires me to use my WC. I’m not sure where else I’d use it - sure there’ll be a bigger DGW later but building this team to field enough (not a full XI because I don’t think it’s needed) and then FH the DGW. With that in mind...

                    A)

                    Vardy Jimenez Ings

                    B)

                    Pope Henderson
                    TAA Gomez Aurier Saïss Taylor
                    KDB Pépé Fernandes Sarr Saka
                    Agüero Jiménez Jota

                    Help is very much appreciated.

                      It depends who comes in from your bench.

                      Definitely not taking a hit to remove a GW31 player. Id trust my bench

                      It’s not about price.

                      Those players will all haul and sellers wont get their points. Very happy they are all dropping

                      4 here WR. But not really too concerned about price drops/rises anymore.

                      Hopefully they become our differentials! 🙂

                            This GW feels extra significant - lots of WCs being played and teams in my MLs looking significant different.

                            Fun times!

                      Anyone tempted to put the armband on Trent? I got a gut feeling he is going to have one of those mega haul GW's Goal and assists.

                        Not with Alisson out and it being a DGW

                        When Auba has dgw and Allison is injured?!? Yes, he might haul, but so could many others. Superstitious g*t feeling is one way of playing this game, but not my style.

                        A) KDB
                        B) Pepe

                        Thanks!

                          2 months, 26 days ago

                          If chasing then go for Pepe. I think he is more likely to play twice than KDB anyway.

                          Pepe G playing games with us, KDB will be fine.

                          Pepe if playing dangerously

                          2 months, 26 days ago

                          I really want KDB but most (and probably rightly so) are saying don't bring him in?!

                          Not panicked before a deadline like this for a while

                            2 months, 26 days ago

                            KDB is amazing, but there's a chance he'll not start this game, possibly even both (I suspect he'll play the majority of both). Depending on what the cost (both in points and chips) is to you, might or might not be worthwhile, but he'll not be playing in 31 and you might be wildcarding soon anyway?

                            Choice is very specific to your situation, whatever it might be.

                          I would go for C. Can't rely on Traore anymore.

                        Bench 1 of:

                        A) Soyuncu
                        B) Stephens
                        C) DCL
                        D) Saka

                        Currently benching Soyuncu but rate my team thinks i should bench DCL. Surely not in the form he's in?

                          Surely you don't set your team up based on RMT?

                            No, but i had a look as i was a bit unsure of benching Soyuncu.

                          no way I would bench DCL

                            DCL scoring form red hot, hard to bench. But I'd play Soy, couldn't give you a reason other than gut feel

                          Hi all

                          in case of Mane benched in early line-up
                          who would you bring?

                            Why would Mane get benched?

                            I am still a newby here but if I still had my TC then Auba will be it.

                            If you still have FT, WC and BB, will you find and opportunity to TC Auba in a DGW?

                            Waiting for 'better fixtures' blah blah.

                            TC Auba

                                    KDB has never haunted me for getting rid of him thos season, TWICE.

                                    Scaremondering "have too much value tied up in him"

                                    Two consistent mids instead of KDB and what is the problem?

                                      KDB is the best player in the game is the problem. And he has a DGW. Cope

                                  Struggling with who to bench - currently settled on:

                                  Pope
                                  TAA Soy Saiss
                                  KDB Salah Fernandes Martial
                                  Jiminez Jota DCL

                                  Subs: Sarr, Lascelles, Stevens

                                  Correct?

                                    I was just about to say that I play Sarr and will bench Soy, but it isn't possible with your team.
