    Good Thursday morning all. Btw, the server time is off by 1 minute. This article appeared at 7:31. 🙂

      Morning! Thanks for sharing this important information.

    In the scenario of unlimited transfers, would you:

    A) alter your team to have 9 DGW players (x3 City, x3 Arsenal, x2 Sheff & x1 Villa)

    B) Play a FH to have 10 DGW players
    (same as above but with x3 Sheff)

    Option A means then using the next few weeks worth of transfers to adjust my squad as I wouldn’t want triple Arsenal & City.

    Option B means my team will reset to a team I’m happy with for the remaining fixtures (KDB being the only DGW asset)

    1. circusmonkey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      That's a good question. As long as there are no more DGWs, I will probably still FH because I spent about 4 transfers in lockdown getting a 15 I was happy with. Using the FH the first week gives you a chance to see how teams line up and fare, so then you can start using transfers and remaining wildcard with a bit more info (granted I'll be using the FH with no info but at least going for obvious players).

      BTW I don't think they'll give us unlimited transfers.

      1. Hitmonlee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Yeah I’m inclined to FH as it stands. I have no second wildcard and I’ve made the mistake of fixing my team with loads of DGW players in the past, only to then spend the next few weeks with a squad I don’t want. A FH will also allow me to get Kun who I would then captain.
        Kind of hope there are no unlimited transfers to take the dilemma out my hands. I shaped my squad through the blanks so I’m quite happy with it.

        Thanks for the input guys.

    2. Do I Not Like Orange
      • 8 Years

      Personally I will do A, then WC my team immediately after the DGW. In your case, I'd go B and play FH.

    3. Amey
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 9 days ago

      If you have WC in hand, A

      But it's not going to happen (my prediction)

    4. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      A with a WC next week is an option too, and save FH for possible future doubles/blanks.

    5. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Depends how the other fixtures full, but if GW40 is a multiple blank like GW31 would have been. I'd get tempted to do a A,, then FH GW40, WC GW41 to set myself my to BB in a DGW (if there is another one)

    6. Ason Willa
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      I think it also depends on whether you have bench boost.

    A little thread on squad structure for the run in.

    https://twitter.com/lateriser12/status/1268454155573551104?s=20

    1. POLSKA GOLA
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Very good point LR about the squad of 15 packed with big hitters. That’s why I’d like to BB for DGW and WC right after to restructure to what you’ve suggested

      1. Rhinos
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        surely your team a bit pants for a bb unless we get unlimited moves?

        1. POLSKA GOLA
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          Team is:
          Hendo, McCarthy
          TAA, Boly, Lund, Baldock, Soy
          Mane, KDB, Maddison, Sarr, Cantwell
          Auba, Jimi, Ings
          0.1itb
          Could get up to 7 DGW players with two transfers

    2. fc_skrald
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Yes thanks. I actually used a few transfer during the lockdown to add money in the bank for future use. My bench now is as cheap as normal: Button, Hayden, Lascelles, Guendouzi (playing a 4:3:3)

    3. Rhinos
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      I'm going further than that and saying can include a fodder in 1st XI. Nketiah will get plenty of gametime, he was starting games pre pandemic anyway and Lacazette not done himself any favours. Add that to transfer rumours and Arteta may want to prime the kid for next season

  6. fc_skrald
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 9 days ago

    For virtual fpl this gw:

    a. DCL, away against Crystal Palace
    b. Pukki, away against Brighton

    1. GreennRed
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      B

  7. Jon Walter's Hatty
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 9 days ago

    Those without a FH and only a few DGWers, what are your plans for the first week?

    Go in with 5 or less DGWers and hope the FH brigade do not run riot?
    Use BB/TC if available?
    Use WC if available to get 7-8 DGWers and a mix to cover rest of season?

    FH is a powerful chip right now, allows players to attack a double while buying some time and information for when they revert back to original team.

    1. POLSKA GOLA
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Most will surely FH for the double, myself I will BB I think and save FH for later. Have 5 DGW players right now, could get two more potentially unless there are unlimited transfers. Next week a WC and saving FH for either 2nd potential DGW or last GW full of punts.
      I want to have some fun and play this end of season a bit different than usual

    2. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Depends on the fixtures, if FA Cup postponements can be moved to later in the same GWs I will FH. If they can't I will save the FH for a multiple blank or DGW, and go with the 4 DGW I've got plus one or two more using FT's (hopefully the one I've saved will roll over)

    3. El Presidente
      2 months, 9 days ago

      It depends on the calendar, everyone is assuming that mid week games will be on their own GW, but I just dont see the logic if this game has been structured diferently, so its quite possible that most GW till the end are DGW. Lets wait and see

      For the first one, definitely my team will have

      Henderson+Lundstram+Egan+Targett+Grealish+Auba+Laca+KDB+Sterling+Jesus/Aguero

      1. GREEN IS GOOD
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        The logic is that if the midweek fixtures are in their own GWs, then FPL will play out as 9 more GWs, bringing the season total to 38.

        I believe this is the most logical, and likely, outcome.

        1. Nightcrawler
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 9 days ago

          WRONG

          1. Jon Walter's Hatty
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 9 days ago

            Why don’t you add some reasoning? You were wrong about the game restarting so being wrong is easily done.

          2. HamezMace
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 9 days ago

            What do you think is wrong about that?

        2. El Presidente
          2 months, 9 days ago

          I get it, but why does it have to be like that? Once you passed the rubicon (meaning GW38) its totally new territory... what we do have as reference is the fact that everytime we have midweek matches we have a DGW. Right?

          1. Klaren
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 9 days ago

            When there is a scheduled gameweek with every team playing in midweek, it is considered a GW on its own, look at GW24 this season for example. This wouldn't be any different so no reason for midweek fixtures to become DGWs.

            1. Klaren
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 9 days ago

              Actually GW15 is a better example for what I described as GW24 didn't have fixtures on the following weekend.

          2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 9 days ago

            There are 40+ fixtures in a 2 weeks period every Christmas

            Those are always separated into 4 separate GW’s despite games being midweek, end of week, weekend, and everything in between

    4. Jon Walter's Hatty
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Thanks for the replies. Im still debating a WC or not as going early makes full use of it but shows your hand. Probably hold BB back for a good fixtures fit or the hope of an impromptu double.

  8. bitm2007
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 9 days ago

    It looks this is the way things are shaping up for the opening weekend of fixtures

    Saturday June 20th at 12.30am Watford v Leicester (BT Sport)
    Saturday June 20th at 5.30pm West Ham Wolves (Sky Sports)

    2 months, 9 days ago

    FH for the double and wondering if Bellerin is worth a punt.... he always seems to be involved in the final third against big teams and he is pretty much nailed, right?

    1. Klaren
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Given his injury problems in the recent years, I'm not sure if he is nailed for both games with a short gap, might start one on the bench.

    2. Jon Walter's Hatty
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      The Arsenal defence is probably one of the hardest to predict. Lots coming back. Luiz position uncertain. Leno to me is the only safe defensive option

      1. Santigold
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        I think Luiz is nailed if fit, but there is a lot of competition for the other spots in the back four:
        - RB: Bellerin, Cedrid (AMN)
        - Other CB: Sokratis, Mustafi, Mari, Holding
        - LB: Tierney, Kolasinac, Saka

    3. Santigold
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      I agree with Klaren. I'm not sure Bellerin is fit enough to play two games per week. And Cedric is finally fit, so he could get some game time. Maitland-Niles has played on the right before as well, but not since Arteta was appointed, so I think it'll be between Bellerin and Cedric at RB.

      1. DannyDrinkVodka
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Cheers, how about Pepe vs Ozil, who do you think is more likely to play both games?

        1. Santigold
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          Arteta seems to have a lot of faith in Özil, so he might get more game time, but I wouldn't expect many attacking returns from him. For the DGW I'd rather take a punt on Pepe.

  10. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    2 months, 9 days ago

    I've got no chips left and only 0.1 ITB currently 3 DGW players saka buldock KDB think I'll try to get Reina in goal for Mcarthy and hope the people in ML have been snoozing seeing as that's all I have to play for anyway!

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 9 days ago

      fail reply to Gary and Jamie

  11. FPL Kakarot
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 9 days ago

    Which player is best to punt on on FH team?

    a) Sarr vs Leicester (home)

    b) Traore vs West Ham (away)

    1. Rasping Drive (BSC Small Bo…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Sarr more nailed.

    2. GreennRed
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Traore, up against a poor defence. Away fixture allegedly not as tricky BCD.

  12. FPL Kakarot
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 9 days ago

    If Kante isn't playing for the rest of the season doesn't that make that potential second Aston Villa game v Chelsea a bit more appealing to punt on some like Samata?

    1. Santigold
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Samatta could be a good cheap punt anyway, if trying to fit in three pricy City players + Auba for the double.

      1. TwiggsJameson
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Yep, I'm looking at him for my FH.
