When are the next three FPL Gameweek deadlines?

Fantasy Premier League have confirmed the deadlines for the first three Gameweeks back following the June resumption.

The announcement comes off the back of the Premier League’s statement earlier on Friday, which rubber-stamped the fixtures for the first three ‘match rounds’.

Aston Villa v Sheffield United and Manchester City v Arsenal will, as previously confirmed, form part of an early Double Gameweek when we restart.

There were no shocks as FPL added that the deadlines will be “the traditional hour before kick-off” of the first match in a Gameweek.

Using that information in conjunction with the earlier fixture news, the first three deadlines appear to be as follows:

  • Wednesday, June 17 – 17:00 BST
  • Tuesday, June 23 – 17:00 BST
  • Saturday, June 27 – 11:30 BST

The first and third of those Gameweeks will take place over six days.

The ‘match round’ beginning on June 27 clashes with the FA Cup quarter-finals but the free midweek afterwards is being used to accommodate the seven fixtures that would ordinarily have been postponed, so all 20 top-flight clubs are scheduled to have a Premier League fixture in that Gameweek.

There were no further details revealed about free transfer allocation, meanwhile, although FPL did reiterate that any chips a Fantasy manager may have intact will still be valid.

The full Fantasy Premier League statement reads thus:

With the release of the first 32 Premier League fixtures for the resumption of the 2019/20 season, if all safety requirements are in place, we would like to offer an update to Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers.

Aston Villa v Sheffield United and Manchester City v Arsenal on 17 June and the full match round that follows from 19 June will constitute the first full Gameweek.

For the three match rounds announced, FPL deadlines will be the traditional hour before kick-off of the opening match of that round.

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.

    Doesn't look like Wildcard / unlimited transfers then!

      Nope. 🙂

    Surely, they cannot make WC/FH available for the restart and give Unlimited transfers on top of that.

    In a regular season start, WC/FH chips are greyed out for GW1 because FPL managers have Unlimited transfers.

      Can't say there being unlimited transfers, and there shouldn't be.

      RMFHT with crap bench

      Henderson 3.9
      Trent Luiz Stevens O’Connell 3.9
      Sterling KDB Pepe Grealish 4.3
      Aguero Aubameyang 4.2

        Similar to my thinking. Tempted to get Doherty in there?

        1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          Would rather get a second Liverpool defender I think.

        Another thread area for this would be great

          • 4 Years

          They tried that before. Personally didnt like it.

          Not a thread. I'm talking about the actual RMT tool in the Members area.

          1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE

            Oh, didnt realise that

            It's somewhat ready to go, albeit with a lot of uncertainty around fitness levels / rotation / form etc

            Just need some gameweeks / full fixture list so it can handle suspensions and injury dates.

          Yeah it doesn't work. The articles refresh too(?!) frequently, as do the pages increment.

          The site doesn't lend itself to going back an viewing old articles or comments 'easily' so in other sections, the RMTs are just ignored.

          If it were more of a vBulletin style-presented site, where previous articles are easier to reference, it may work better.

          1. Pumpy Pro
            • 11 Years
            11 months, 11 days ago

            Shame. I remember they tried last time and started well but lost control of it. Although i remember scotty B was spamming the site at that time so that was 90% of the RMT posts.

            Think they should give it another go or try limiting it to one per day or somthing. They nearly did it last time

    If you got both FH and WC and a proper team for the upcoming gws, it's a nobrainer to FH this week right?

    1. GREEN IS GOOD
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 11 days ago

      Looks like it

  6. FPL Kaka
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 11 days ago

    On a FH, which combo do you think is better?

    a) Mane and Sarr

    b) Son and Pepe (x 2 maybe)

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 11 days ago

      B

    2. Hart-ake
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 11 days ago

      Son at home to United? I wouldn't. Probably A.

    3. Another Hoops
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 11 days ago

      Mane for me. Have you thought about Ozil instead of Pepe? Tends to get subbed but this could increase his chances of minutes in both games and 2mil less.

  7. chaser123
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 11 days ago

    On FH, what are the essentials? I am thinking that it really only is:

    1) KDB
    2) Grealish
    3) Aguero
    4) Auba
    5) Sheffield United defender/GK

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 11 days ago

      Is Aguero essential? Think I'm getting Jesus instead. They'll probably play a similar amount of minutes and Jesus is considerably cheaper.

      1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 11 days ago

        But Aguero is more explosive!

        1. I Member
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          11 months, 11 days ago

          He is but I'd rather have Jesus + Salah/Mane than the Aguero + Pepe combination I'm seeing in a lot of teams.

        2. Jon Walter's Hatty
          • 7 Years
          11 months, 11 days ago

          You have to do some guesswork but I'd think Pep plays his '1st XI' v Arteta...no way will he want to lose that game. So Jesus and the 'B teamers' may be in line for the Burnley game...

    2. Jon Walter's Hatty
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 11 days ago

      I agree. Good luck picking 3 City mids out of Sterling KDB Sane both Silvas Mahrez, Gundogan and Foden. Let alone Rodrigo and Ferdy having at least one of those spots.

      An FH might benefit from having Kun and Jesus in it and hopefully having at least 180 mins combined from a City striker.

    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    I'll be amazed to see unlimited transfers for the start. It'll be massively unfair in the top 100 etc on those who have saved their chips. 2FTs and then all remaining chips available for those who have them would be my hope.

    1. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 11 days ago

      All remaining chips thing has already been confirmed no?

      1. Hart-ake
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 11 days ago

        yeah.

    2. Another Hoops
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 11 days ago

      Agree with this. I've already used my WC and don't want unlimited transfers, 2FTs is enough to get started.

    3. Rhinos
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 11 days ago

      what about those who used their chips in gw29? There isn't a fair solution fpl aint fair

      1. Jon Walter's Hatty
        • 7 Years
        11 months, 11 days ago

        Mirrors life then...

      2. Another Hoops
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 11 days ago

        That's just unlucky like when I TC Mane for his first half cameo and 3 points during a DGW. IMO unlimited transfers should not be an option especially when the game was still open for the last 9 game weeks.

        1. Pasqualinho
          • 11 Years
          11 months, 11 days ago

          As a WC29er and Mane TCer I would say that losing the MCY/ars game was worse. But yes, just unlucky. But it’s a big no from me for 2FTs for everyone. Those who stopped playing should get those anyway by rolling over their GW38 transfer they didn’t use, and those that have made a transfer a week while the game was dead shouldn’t get an extra one.

        2. Rhinos
          • 7 Years
          11 months, 11 days ago

          and getting unlimited transfers would be unlucky for you. Fpl towers aren't gonna maje decisions based on whats fair it'll be a balance of what's easiest and what generates the most clicks

  9. Another Hoops
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 11 days ago

    It sounds to me like its just going to be a normal game week to kick things off and I presume people will either have 1 or potentially 2 transfers saved up to get started. I only have one myself and at the moment plan to save a transfer for the 2nd deadline. DGW Leno and KDB for me with Saka 1st sub.

  10. RED_ARMY
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 11 days ago

    Do we think Mendy plays, wow fun summer times ahead.

    1. Another Hoops
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 11 days ago

      He'll play if fit but will obviously be a rotation headache.

      1. BNMC
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 11 days ago

        I think he starts ahead of Zinchenko if fit, but keep in mind he is injury prone and will probably be one of the first players subbed off.

        1. TwiggsJameson
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          11 months, 11 days ago

          6 points banked after 62 minutes then.

  11. Fred54
    • 6 Years
    11 months, 11 days ago

    So will there be 2 FTs?

    1. Jon Walter's Hatty
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 11 days ago

      If you saved one from GW38 that would be the obvious follow on.

    2. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 11 days ago

      Probably if you saved a transfer last GW. As usual.

  12. Jon Walter's Hatty
    • 7 Years
    11 months, 11 days ago

    Forgotten man FH?

    Heaton
    Kolasinac Otamendi Basham
    Ozil Sane Sterling McGinn Fleck
    Lacazette Mousset

    ...with Targett of course first sub...

    1. BNMC
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 11 days ago

      Now that, is a team.

      1. Jon Walter's Hatty
        • 7 Years
        11 months, 11 days ago

        Highest owned bar Sterling is Fleck at 5.5%

    2. Another Hoops
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 11 days ago

      This is the type of team that will finish the week with top. Just like the random guys who create a random account every week just to try and get number one spot on a Friday night after Triple Capping Wes Morgan for a 45 point haul 🙂

  13. A Fat Spanish Waiter
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    11 months, 11 days ago

    Stupid question: If they do end up giving us free transfers prior to the restart (which looks considerably less likely at present), would you even be able to use them if you intend to free hit in GW39?

    1. TwiggsJameson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      11 months, 11 days ago

      No.

    2. FPL Pillars
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 11 days ago

      Soon find out 🙂

  14. nibby
    • 8 Years
    11 months, 11 days ago

    Do we get extra free transfers or extra wc?

    1. Jigger & Pony
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 11 days ago

      5 FTs would do given revised fixture list

    2. Dr.Oftaw
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      11 months, 11 days ago

      No

  15. Daniel - Maquire or Hendo?
    • 11 Years
    11 months, 11 days ago

    Hope scouts will update the ticker

  16. Cak Juris
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    11 months, 11 days ago

    Is it any potential DGW or BGW besides first fixture of FPL restart?

    1. TwiggsJameson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      11 months, 11 days ago

      Looks very unlikely. Hoping for snow 🙂

    2. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 11 days ago

      Maybe. A second wave of COVID-19 in the UK might disrupt the schedule a bit ...

      1. Pumpy Pro
        • 11 Years
        11 months, 11 days ago

        That would end the schedule completey 😆

        1. jtreble
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          11 months, 11 days ago

          Maybe. We could also see regional lockdowns reestablished that only affect one or very few teams. I’m hoping things go as smoothly as they have for the Bundesliga though ... 🙂

  17. pablo discobar
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    11 months, 11 days ago

    GK Pope
    DEF TAA, Maguire, Laporte
    MID Salah, De Bruyne, Fernandes, Grealish
    FWD DCL, Auba, Jiminez

    Subs (Woodman), Barnes,Saiss, Stephens

    GW 39 transfer will take me to 5 DGW (could well be Woodman to Reina) players.

    I have Wilcard, Bench Boost and free hit left.... but do I need to use any of them for GW 29? I'm not so sure?

    Thanks

    1. Netley Lucas
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 11 days ago

      Looks a nice set-up to FH then return to in 40 and use trannies to polish it up for a week or two so you can save WC & BB for an epic attack.

      1. pablo discobar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        11 months, 11 days ago

        Thanks mate

    2. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 11 days ago

      Same as my XI but I have:

      Grealish > Barnes (WAT)
      Maguire > AWB (TOT)
      Laporte > Doherty (WHU)

      Although I'd Lilley be playing Egan (AVL + NEW) over AWB (TOT).

      Half tempted by Salah/DCL to Grealish/Aguero... but would lose SV and might not be worth it.

      I'm sort of in the same boat as you. I'm now sure how much more the FH would improve upon the players I already have, and their fixtures.

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 11 days ago

        Note: I could also get Laporte and have thought about it... but Doherty has a good fixture, and does for the next 2/3 too. Laporte could have reduced minutes, which I suppose is the risk.

  18. Nightcrawler
    • 1 Year
    11 months, 11 days ago

    Have a dilemma. Only have BB and WC left

    Only 2 DGWers (kdb and lund) in my team atm. Do i :

    A) use 2 free transfers and take hit(s) to get 3 or 4 more dgwers and play BB

    B) use the wildcard

    C) get 2 or 3 more dgwers but save BB for later

  19. 1justlookin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years

    I've got 2 FT's. If I Free Hit will I lose the 2 FT's?

    1. Netley Lucas
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 11 days ago

      Yep, back te one.

  20. 1justlookin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    11 months, 11 days ago

    If there is only 1 DG is it best to Free Hit this?

    Only have FH & BB intact.

    1. HamezMace
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 11 days ago

      I would say yes, but it depends on how many DGWers you have in your current team.

      1. 1justlookin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        11 months, 11 days ago

        ive got 3 atm. KDB & 2 SHU defenders.

    Which FH team is best do you think?

    Team A (3-4-3) Team B (3-5-2) Team C (3-4-3)
