Early Double Gameweek set to take place as FPL confirm plans to resume

The news many of us were hoping for finally arrived on Saturday afternoon as Fantasy Premier League confirmed that they will resume in mid-June.

FPL will be back with a bang, too, as the two fixtures originally postponed due to the clash with the Carabao Cup final – and now scheduled to take place on June 17 – will form part of an early Double Gameweek.

Aston Villa, Sheffield United, Manchester City and Arsenal will all have two fixtures in the first post-hiatus Gameweek, then, should all go to plan.

In their statement, FPL announced that “additional multiple Gameweeks” will be created to absorb the remaining 92 matches once the dates and fixture schedule are finalised.

Reiterating what they said a fortnight ago, FPL also confirmed that any chips Fantasy managers still have intact (i.e. Triple Captain, Bench Boost, Free Hit and/or Wildcard) would remain available.

There was nothing in the statement about an additional Wildcard or unlimited transfers being granted before what will presumably be called Gameweek 39, nor was there any indication of whether transfers rolled over from Gameweek 38 will still be valid.

Further correspondence from FPL will follow, with the site itself still in a state of limbo at the time of writing.

Today’s full statement reads as follows:

Premier League Shareholders this week agreed to a new provisional restart date for the 2019/20 season of Wednesday 17 June, provided that all safety requirements are in place.

The health and welfare of all participants are our priority.

We would like to offer an update to Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers wondering what this means for their teams.

Once a date is confirmed and the remaining fixtures have been announced, our plan is to resume FPL with additional multiple Gameweeks created to reflect the remaining 92 fixtures.

Aston Villa v Sheffield United and Manchester City v Arsenal, postponed due to the Carabao Cup final, are scheduled to take place on 17 June, two days before a full match round commences on 19 June.

These two fixtures and the full match round that follows would constitute the first full Gameweek.

We would like to remind managers that any chips you retain at present (i.e. Triple Captain, Bench Boost, Free Hit and/or Wildcard) would remain available for you, in accordance with the Game Rules, for these Gameweeks.

We thank FPL managers for their continued patience and will provide you further updates on the game when appropriate.

    DGW

    Get in

      Mane dislikes this.

        Was my triple cappo 🙁

      Was thinking last night whether I would prefer FPL to start back with a blank GW or a DGW. It just has to be a DGW for me as they are way more fun and unpredictable than a blank GW for sure.

    FH GW39??

    Leno
    Stevens, Lundy, Baldock
    KDB, Sterling, Grealish, Pepe,
    Kun, Auba, __8.0__
    (lol, lol, lol lol)

    Probably need a better bench, maybe DCL up front and a few centre backs likely to play sitting on bench

    Captaincy dilemma though

    1. La Roja
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Decent team except Pepe imo

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Would just get him for a roll of the dice - he has the odd 15 pointer in him but I'm not a huge fan in a non FH GW

        It'll be pure guesswork anyways about who will even start for teams let alone who will be in form

    2. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Get Laporte?

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Probably more sensible... KDB Sterling Kun could be fun though...

    3. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Aubameyang or KdB cappo

      Grealish and treble SHU D, would won't him to score in the first game of the DGW !

    I hope FPL:

    - Reverse all transfers (and any deducted transfer points) made since the game paused.
    - Don't give out a free WC.

    That way, nobody gains and nobody loses out. It can be viewed as a long pause, and everyone resumes from where they left off.

    1. Fred54
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Elsewhere I mused the first point too. There was also a period where transfers were allowed in 'Ghost GWs.'

    2. La Roja
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Why would they reserve transfers though? I don’t get it. Everyone had an equal chance to do transfers throughout this period

      1. La Roja
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Reverse*

      2. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        I'll bet my left nut that they don't reverse transfers.

        1. Berbs
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Bet your right one that they will. At least you're guaranteed to be half the man you are 😉

            A win-win scenario 😀

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Can you really afford to lose another one, E.F.?

          1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years

            Yeah. It means I won't have to use johnnies anymore.

            1. FPL Virgin

              • 3 Years
              1 month, 8 days ago

              Adolf got by on just the one.

      3. Berbs
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Not everybody knew and not everybody could've.

        Gaining 9 additional FT is an unfair advantage.

        1. La Roja
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Again, I don’t get how’s this an unfair advantage

          Let’s agree to disagree

          1. Berbs
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Say that to a key worker

            It's not only us who play the game

            1. BIELSA

              Hahah you what?

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              I'm a key worker and have been aware of the situation 😉

        2. Fred54
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          I knew, but I just couldn't be bothered with transfers. More apathy based really.

          Many seasoned players similar.

    3. Ginkapo FPL
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Eh? I dont want the slow wildcarders to get back their Arsenal and City players. I doubt a slow wildcard helped anyone.

      1. Wolves Ay We
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        I agree and a lot of expert players like Joe didn't even bother.

    4. HuttonDressedasLahm
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Disagree, unless fixture order remains the same (which it doesn’t lol like) as it would ruin my planning otherwise

    5. Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Did you know we could do a slow WC?

  4. La Roja
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Current team:

    Pope
    Alonso Doherty TAA
    Salah Bruno KDB Doucoure
    Vardy Jota DCL

    Krul Taylor Lundstram Dendoncker

    No idea if it’s good squad at this stage lol

    1. Berbs
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      We don't know much about fitness levels, form etc.

      But KDB has put on a lot of weight, that's for sure.

    Dear FFS - would be useful to have an article on players who are still at home abroad. They’ll need to do 14 days quarantine on return which means unlikely to start the first DGW?

        Yep, they will be treated as essential workers.

        1. La Roja

          They are anyway 😛

        Yep, esp if tested recently then on return.

    3. TheGypsyJoker

      The quarantine doesn't start until 8th June and they will be back before then.

  6. BNMC
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Thoughts on this FH team? Might not go all out on the DGW since there are a few other players with good fixtures.

    Hendo
    TAA Laporte Doherty Lundstram
    KDB Bruno Grealish Sarr
    Aguero Auba

    Or maybe I go without Bruno for one week? Spurs defense are pants though.

    1. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Looks good. Not keen on double Blades defence though.

      1. BNMC
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Could also go Heaton or Reina, depends on the former's registration though.

        1. GreennRed
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Depending on team news though I wouldn't expect either of them to out score Henderson. Whereas there might be a few attack minded defenders to sit in The Lord's lofty throne that GW.

  7. Jafooli
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    That tweet 😮

    1. La Roja

      I miss all about it. Even these standard Jafooli stuff

  8. Hitmonlee
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year

    Looks like a perfect time to FH on the first GW back!

    Don’t see any other doubles after this?

    1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I doubt it, but games could still be rescheduled for whatever reason. I'm sure there will be more twists and turns to come.

    2. Fred54
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Probably not, the FA cup dates are pencilled in and any blanks generated appear to fall into a midweek slot.

      1. Fred54
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        But anything could still happen.

    3. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Prob is best option. But if you get a nice few doubles and one of them looks a juicy captain pick then TC is another plan.

  9. Revival
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Other than Rico I have got a squad of all regular starters for their teams this season. If FPL roll over the 2 FT then bench boost looks the way to go with 5 or 6 DGW players on board.

    1. Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      What's your team?

      1. Revival
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Pope McCarthy
        TAA Lascelles O'Connell Boly Rico
        Salah Bruno KDB Fleck Cantwell
        DCL Auba Jimenez

        1. Wolves Ay We
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Yep, your plan could work. I still have fodder.

          1. Revival
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Yeah team in decent shape. If funds allow maybe Rico and Cantwell out for a cheap Villa defender and a regular starter.

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I agree. Don't think there will be a better time to BB.

  10. Wolves Ay We
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Henderson
    Laporte, Egan, TAA
    KDB. Grealish, Salah, Fleck
    Auba, Aguero, Jimenez

    Subs: Button, Simpson, Kilman, Saka

    How about this for a FH team?

    1. Fred54
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      KdB is 3 months pregnant according to FPL twitter.

      1. Fred54
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        They actually said fat, but nothing gets past me.

      2. Wolves Ay We
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        I'll replace him when it starts to show.

    2. Hitmonlee
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Don’t like Fleck and I’d say you need Lundy on a FH. You’re in trouble if he bangs

      1. Wolves Ay We
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        But is Lundy going to play? I have him in my current team.

      2. Wolves Ay We
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        I'll play Saka then and keep Fleck as a sub.

  11. SADIO SANÉ
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    so you just FH and then WC, seems easy enough

    1. La Roja
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Glad someone figured it all out

    2. Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Yep, unless you can get away with a hit and keep the WC for GW38

    3. Netley Lucas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      If they restart with unlimited trannies then BB might be best esp if no other doubles/blanks. If not yeah, FH then WC.

      1. GreennRed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        BB might impact the quality of your 11 for future GWs. TC also worth considering. Strong 11, then mostly fodder on the bench.

    4. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Where does BB factor in though? I think I'd rather BB right away and then not have to worry about my bench too much for the rest of the season.

  12. Henning
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    With no WC left should you use FH this team?

    Pope Button

    TAA VvD Boly Stephens Lundstram

    Salah Fernandez KdB Sarr Grealish

    Rashford Jimenez DCL

    1. Hitmonlee
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Depends on other fixtures mate but I’d say so.

  13. Wolves Ay We
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    What's all this GW39 business? FPL will restart at GW30, I'm 99.99% sure.

    1. Revival
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      They already completed all the gameweeks, easier now to just start with new additional gameweeks. e.g. 39, 40 etc

      1. Wolves Ay We
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

      Same difference. FPL GW38 expired. Depends on how they set up the FPL game now, but it's prob starting with a DGW with GW29 finishing on the 17th and GW20 games that weekend. ,

    Kdb is the only player I have from Arsenal, City, Sheffield and Villa. CH seems the only way to go if I want to go balls to the wall.

    Henderson
    Baldock, Lundstram, Mings
    Kdb, Pepe, Mahrez, Grealish
    Aguero, Auba, Laca

    3.9gk, Luiz, Tanganga, Williams

            Shouldn’t underestimate SGW players tbh

              Yeah I agree. I normally mess up DGW’s really. Manè TC...

            I'd get Saka from Arsenal but would also have a few SGW players in there. Going all out on City attack seems too much given Pep will rotate for sure with the likes of the 2 Silva's and Foden starting at least 1 of the games.

  16. Revival
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Pep will surely troll us for the DGW. Will make multiple substitutions before the 59th minute in both games and change half the starting XI for the Burnley game.

    Pep might be able to use 5 (five) subs.

      we might get 150 minutes out of our DGW players if we are lucky.

      Good. Pep may take off players and bring them back them on in the same match. 😀

    What would you do with this lot and 2 FTs?

    Leno*
    TAA, Maguire, Lundstram*
    Salah, KDB*, Fernandes, Grealish*
    Aubameyang, Jimenez, DCL

    Pope; Egan*, Hayden, Hanley.

    A) Free Hit
    B) Bench Boost

    I'm leaning towards B as I already have 6 DGWers.

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I think BB- very similar to my squad

    2. in sane in de bruyne
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      A if you used your second WC, I think

      Otherwise B and try to squeeze in two more DGW players

  20. FPL Virgin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Let's discuss the elephant in the room ... Namely, KDB with his big gut, chubby thighs and double chin.

    He looks desperately unfit. There's no way he plays two games in quick succession in the double. He's going to be a very (excuse the pun) heavily backed captain fail, which presents a great opportunity for forward thinking FPL managers.

    Time to cash in and spread the funds?

    1. La Roja
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Keep reading here he is unfit, is there any link you can share? I haven’t seen anywhere else

      1. FPL Virgin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Recent training ground photo. He's about double the size compared to the photo accompanying this article.

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Will start at least one game to gain fitness. That's enough for me to keep him. Rank destroyed if he hauls.

    3. Fred54
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Pfft, he's like Thor from Avengers: Endgame. Yeah sure he's let himself go but he'll still pack a punch...

    4. Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Who do you propose in his place?

    5. Ole Trafford
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I don’t know... the man is having one of his best seasons, if not his best. Has been the best player in the league by a distance. Not going to lose his talent because he has put on weight. Likely to lose minutes because of it though but with 5 subs most of the attack will.

    Pavard would be FPL royalty

      Amazing full back he is

    2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      3 goals & 3 assists in 27 games...

      TAA pretty much got that in GW19

      1. Berbs
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Probably unjust to compare any RBs numbers to TAA. Be surprised if anyone comes close.

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Na it’s not unfair to compare his entire season to one game from TAA (he just doesn’t compare if you start bringing more of TAA’s games into the equation, let alone a full season)

          FPL Royalty was the claim so a good way to illustrate that that’s the company he’d be keeping in that bracket

          Even coming down from genuine FPL Royalty - There are a full 7 FPL Defenders with as much or more attacking returns than him this season - and many more with 4-5 returns

          I just wouldn’t see him as FPL Royalty at all

          Last season he got 0A 0G in 29 bundesliga apps...

    Gameweeks normally have one match per team. I read multiple in the FPL statement to read more than one match per team. The most likely reason for this would be gameweek deadlines on a calendar week basis, likely giving each club two fixtures in the same gameweek.
    Or it could just be sloppy language from the FPL, but I suspect it's not.

    1. Fred54

      I mentioned that earlier they appear to have the words additional and multiple the wrong wat round. I can't see why they would start working on a calendar week basis now, when they haven't done it for the rest of the season.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        It does seem odd I agree. Maybe it would be easier to write the necessary changes into the software? I know nothing about software mind, that's just an idea.

    How many double GWs and blank GW remaining?

    1. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      The first GW black is a DGW, we won't know if there are likely to be any more until the fixture dates have been announced. Games are likely to be postponed due to the FA Cup QF and SF games being played at weekends, but they could be moved to midweek in the same GW if they are free.
