Is fit-again McGinn a viable route into Villa attack for FPL Double Gameweek 30+?

The return to fitness of John McGinn (£5.4m) offers an alternative route into Aston Villa’s attack for Double Gameweek 30+.

But is it worth using the Scottish international to go without Jack Grealish (£6.4m) and save some money? That’s what some Fantasy managers will be asking ahead of Project Restart.

And for anyone looking to invest in a Villa attacking double-up, is McGinn necessarily the right person to compliment Grealish in our squads?

We have performed another deep dive into the data to answer these important questions.

As this article uses large chunks from the Members Area, only those with a valid Fantasy Football Scout subscription can read it in full.

WHAT IS MCGINN’S FITNESS LATEST?

McGinn was last seen on the pitch in Gameweek 18, when he managed just seven minutes of the 3-1 home defeat to Southampton. He was taken off with an ankle injury, which an X-ray confirmed was a fracture.

That kept him out of Dean Smith’s considerations until early March when he returned to full training.

The Villa manager had planned to assess McGinn’s fitness ahead of the Gameweek 30 meeting with Chelsea, suggesting that the international break could be a good time to get him back up to full speed.

“John is back in full contact training with the players. It’s a boost for us and I’ll have to make a decision on whether he is ready to play a part against Chelsea. After the Chelsea game, we have the international break and also a break where we were supposed to be playing Newcastle as well. We will arrange a game for John to play and hopefully, we will see the best of him after the international break.” – Dean Smith, speaking on March 12

However, the coronavirus suspension for the Premier League put paid to McGinn’s chances of a March comeback.

Three months without competitive action will have helped clear up any lasting niggles from the injury for McGinn, but it has also robbed Smith of any chance to build up the player’s match fitness.

The international break he was hoping to use for that was also put on hold and such a long time without full squad training will have also been a stagnating factor in bringing McGinn back up to full speed.

While most of his colleagues last tested themselves in a Premier League match setting in March, McGinn has not done so since mid-December, roughly six months ago now.

Ahead of a Double Gameweek 30+, there are encouraging messages coming out of the Villa camp about McGinn though.

“He (John McGinn) looks back to his normal self. Everyone knows he’s like a little bulldog when he’s on the pitch and he’s certainly been like that in training. I can’t give him enough credit. I know everyone says he runs around and has legs, but he isn’t just about that, he has class about him as well. He’s one of those players you don’t appreciate until you play alongside him, and he’s like that in the changing room as well. Even the first day he came back into training he just gave everyone a lift because he’s such a popular figure in the dressing room, he always puts a smile on everyone’s face at the club.” – Jack Grealish

“Ginny is a great player and he has such an infectious personality that when he isn’t around the team, it does make a big difference. I think he is one of the players who, when they are on the team sheet, it affects the mindset of the opposition. He is certainly one of those players for us because he brings so much on and off the pitch. It will be good to have him back, for sure. We have got quality throughout the team but this period now has allowed players to come back and for teams to perhaps refresh their squad in terms of players that would have missed the season if it had finished on time. I think we are in a fortunate position in that we get John McGinn back. Teams around us will strengthen too.” – Tyrone Mings

    I have just a good team with in total about 1,2value tied up, so that i think i will FH.
    I will get a good team back for 32 and a i have my WC later.

    WC surely much more use after not just one week.
    Maybe after Pool Title and sense making of how much players play with 5subs.

    1. Dr. Agabuse
      • 8 Years

      I have Pope who has great fixtures.
      So has Taylor, Soyuncu, Doherty, Alonso.
      Jimenez too. TAA, Salah and KDB relevant in this game.
      Grealish one good fixture then becomes Martial or Fernandes with 1 of the 2FTS.
      CalvertLewin potential season keeper. mixed fixtures. Dont see better value at his price range except maybe Jota for the next 4 but want and have Jimmy.
      Auba amazing fixtures short term.

      Other I have Cantwell and Saka on the bench behind Taylor/Soy.

      You got me thinking. Might be unwise to ship out all that value.

      Time will tell which strategy is best...

      But, if City & Arsenal big hitters get points, SHU get a cleanie (or 2) and maybe Grealish or McGinn score a goal or two. Then, unlimited transfers followed by WC will have undoubtedly been the play.

      My gut tells me that the DGW will be a damp squib though as the small DGW's often are

        It's more about who has good form after the break. It's a huge question mark coming into GW30. Postponing WC on to GW 32-33 rather than spending it on GW31 just based on 1 match performance could be THE play. That means FH now so you don't have to WC 31. Then intensive scouting, WC 32/33 and the WC sets up BB 34.

    4. HashAttack

      I reckon I will be reducing my bench value by at least 1M after playing BB ... so you can recover some money that way

      Using BB this week, I have a bench of Reina, TAA, Bruno and Tammy ... think that's got to be better that any value lost by selling all my players

      1. GREEN IS GOOD
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        This.

        My BB bench will include TAA and Mane.

      2. Dr. Agabuse
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        thats true, but i have taylor cntwell saka.

        rather the problem is that wc always loses you value, and esp if i wc in 34 or later, i will have to get a stronger bench for the BB.
        BB is ideal to be used now unfortunately

        1. Dr. Agabuse
          • 8 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          ah sorry didnt get the point there first
          meant that you will wc into better value on the bench for the rest of the season

  2. I Member
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years

    A) Sterling, Mount, Cantwell, Henderson
    B) Mane, Fleck, Douglas Luiz, Ederson

    Anyone got a non template unlimited transfer team (no wc) they are considering ?

  4. jb1985
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Only have FH left so might as well use it to make the most of the DGW, haven't touched my team since before games were cancelled.

    Original team (31+ onwards)

    Hendo,
    TAA, Boly, O'Connell,
    KDB, Mane, Salah, Barnes,
    Vardy, Jimi, DCL

    Pope, Saka, Lascelles, Taylor

    FH Team:

    Hendo,
    Egan, Alonso, O'Connell
    KDB, Pepe, Sterling, Grealish,
    Tammy, Aguero, Auba

    Martin, Guendouzi, Jannmaat, Hanley

    Any room for improvement on the FH team?

    1. CostaCoffee
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Alonso is a big risk for a FH team especially if you have no decent sub. Chelsea will almost definitely playing a back 4 against Villa and Alonso is quite a liability in a back 4. Expect Azpi at left back if Reece James is fit

      1. CostaCoffee
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        The rest is good though

    2. JfA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      That's an excellent DGW team, can't get near that with my team value.

    Where is the RMT section?

  6. Tomas_brolin
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Which cheapie would you go for in a FH?

    1. Douglas Luiz
    2. Martinelli
    3. Nketiah

    1. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      3.

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      3

    3. The_Fish
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      None of them.

  7. FPL Kaka
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Looks like injuries could be huge in FPL. Injuries up 250% in Germany and we've been out for a few weeks longer so probably in even worse condition.

    Going to be frustrating

    1. Concrete
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      This and rotation, 5 subs...going to be frustrating indeed

    2. HamezMace
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Oh absolutely.
      The players have had a longer break than they’ve experienced before.
      Normal preseason is about 5 weeks minimum, with 5/6 friendlies played.
      These players have had one week of non contact training in groups of 5. One friendly match, or just an intersquad training game! Followed by one more of full training, and back to playing elite PL football.

      It’s going to be a bloodbath.

      1. FPL Kaka
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Which makes me wonder could FFS draw up a list of players who rarely ever get injured?

        1. Make Arrows Green Again
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          And I was wondering if there was a similar list of players who always seem to get soft tissue injuries.

      2. HashAttack
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        One reason why I fancy Tammy against Villa, when Chelsea are fresh and Villa have already played once

    3. thegaffer82
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Definitely going to cause headaches.

      Wouldn't shock me if Kun or KDB pull up after 5 mins of the first game. Would be just my luck!

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 1 month ago

        They’ll be tons, can see likes of city/pool getting 2 goals up and getting off their main men quickly

  8. Concrete
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    FH team for this coming GW

    Leno
    Sheff Utd x3
    De Bruyne Sterling Grealish McGinn
    Aguero Auby Lacazette

    Bench target and fodder

    31 team ok and bb in a single Gw with less rotation risk could be an advantage

    1. thegaffer82
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      All in on SHU DF. Can't say I'm keen to be honest. I'd go 2 SHU DFers and hedge my bets with a decent SGWer or Targett.

      If SHU get a cleanie or 2, you'll still be laughing

      1. Concrete
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years

        Cheers Gaffer

    2. HashAttack
      • 4 Years

      Which 3 SHU defenders ... I'm currently on Lundstram, Stevens and Baldock

  9. Wild Guus Chase

    Nice article David.

    All, stuck in a quandary, so your help would be appreciated:

    Boly & Aguero or Doherty & Rashford/Vardy? Already have Auba

    On unlimited and BB. Ta

    1. Loftus cheeky nandos
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      i think vardy is better option than rashford rn, vardy more likely to play 90 min every game, rashford not neccessarily from the start

    2. Champ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Doc and carry imo

      1. Champ
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Vardy

    3. Wild Guus Chase

      Thanks guys

  10. Daghe Munegu
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Is this BB team without Auba good enough?

    Leno Henderson
    TAA Stevens Baldock Doherty Targett
    KDB Mahrez Grealish Mount Cantwell
    Kun Jimenez Abraham

    1. Champ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Pretty good not sure about Mahrez. I would consider having Harvey Barnes instead for Watford and use the money on cant well. Good luck anyway

    2. HashAttack
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I think Abraham could score big ... my front 3 are Auba, Jimenez and Abraham, with Laporte being my 3rd MCI slot

  11. Buck The Trent
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Is Basham nailed on?

    Also own Egan but 0.1 short for O’Connell

    1. HamezMace
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Seems to be just as nailed as Egan, and O’Connell

    2. CostaCoffee
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Yes 100%

    3. Jullepuu
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Nailed but he is the first one to drop if things go bad for them

  12. Loftus cheeky nandos
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    auba, vardy and mc ginn
    or auba, jimenez and grealish

    1. Champ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Second one

    This may have been asked by others, but here is my latest quandary:

    Grealish & Bruno
    or
    Mcginn & Son

    Thoughts?

    1. Wild Guus Chase
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Grealish and Bruno mate

    2. Buck The Trent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      1 year, 1 month ago

      A

    3. Indio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Grealish and Bruno.

  14. kamdaraji
    • 12 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    welcome back all it's been a long time!

    I have activated BB with WC and FH still left. Thoughts on my BB team below which I will WC in GW31. I did get rid of 1.5m in team value but still have team value of 105.5m so can still get a strong team when I WC in GW31 to set myself up for the rest of the season.

    BB squad

    Leno Krul
    Baldock Stevens Targett Doherty Lascelles
    Ozil KDB Sterling Grealish Fleck
    Aguero Aubameyang Samatta
    .

    1. Scholes Out Forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Ozil pick to me is a bit overkill on Ars. Dont forget they play MCI as one of their doubles. like everything else

  15. sirmorbach
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    A. Egan, Saka, Samatta
    B. Lundstram, McGinn, Nketiah

    1. CostaCoffee
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      A

    2. AuFeld
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      A. I question Saka as he's reverse OOP.

  16. Scholes Out Forever
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    First pass at a BB GW 30+ team, would appreciate some thoughts:

    Henderson
    Baldock - Doherty - TAA
    Salah - KDB - Bruno - Grealish
    Auba - Jimmy - Samatta

    Sub: Pope - Justin - Lascelles - Cantwell

    Samatta is the only question mark I have right now, along with lack of MCI players (Aguero). 6 DGW players should be enough, considering I have no WC.

    1. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I would drop Salah and Samatta for Aguero and someone.

  17. FPL Kaka
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Decided to BB this week with a fairly balanced team and a bit of a game plan, would appreciate your opinions and thoughts:

    Ederson ● Leno
    TAA ● O'Connell ● Egan ● Lascelles ● Boly
    Grealish ● KDB ● Bruno ● Doucoure ● Fleck
    Auba ● Aguero ● Jimenez

    Doucoure acting as my differential punt in a Watford team who shouldn't be on the beach.

    Can do Aguero to Kane / Vardy depending who looks better the week after

    Will downgrade Ederson for cash in order to upgrade a midfielder after two weeks

    1. Indio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I like it - decent balance as you say, which is of course especially important if you're not WCing in GW+31.

    2. Scholes Out Forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      That looks real good. Comfortable to go without salah/mane before they win the league?

      1. FPL Kaka
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Not particularly but hoping if they punish then it will only be a short term 2 game thing before they win the league

    3. POLSKA GOLA
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      It’s a very solid BB team. I went with JWP at 0.1 more as the differential. Somehow I don’t trust Watford, no more home advantage without the supporters, I feel Leicester will dominate the game

      1. FPL Kaka
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Yeah that Doucoure slot is the one that could be flexible. I like the JWP pick but do we feel confident that Southampton won't be on the beach?

        1. POLSKA GOLA
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          It’s a lottery but he’s most nailed SOT player and on set pieces so I’m willing to take a risk against poor NOR defence without the home supporters behind them

          1. FPL Kaka
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 year, 1 month ago

            Good point

    4. Champ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I like it

  18. YuvalFPL
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Strongly considering Tammy in a free hit team. Anyone else?

    Mount would be cheaper but I've got a feeling Tammy might haul.

    1. CostaCoffee
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Yes I've got him currently

    2. Scholes Out Forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      toss up really. depends on rest of the team

    3. Champ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I might go with mount. Think he's more likely to play and think he scored in the corresponding fixture which means that he's guaranteed to score again 😉

      1. CostaCoffee
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        But Tam got a goal + an assist

    4. Indio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Yep, considering him in GW30+ BB team, but haven't settled on this yet!

    5. HashAttack
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I'm going with Tammy ... could be against a tired, injured Villa team

    6. Klaren
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      We don't know what position Mount will play in, I'd say Tammy is definitely the better choice between the two.

  19. Mr. O'Connell
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Triple Sheff U defence has a bit of a 'Shane Duffy Triple Captain' feel about it

    1. Scholes Out Forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      double with hendo and a wing back is more than enough

    2. Indio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I fear you might be right!

    3. Original Pirate Material
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Yep but guess what, im still doing it!

    4. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Think I prefer double + Fleck.

      1. HashAttack
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Fleck did score a double against Villa in the reverse fixture

          Hendo, Fleck and coin toss for the other. Actually siding towards Lundstram tbh

    Like the look of this BB team, not too sure about Ozil. Any thoughts appreciated. Plan to wc in 31. Thanks

      Ozil a punt yes but otherwise looks strong mate.

    What do you make of this BB effort?
    Where would u change?
    Leno, Hendo.
    TAA, Tierney, Stevens, Saiss, Egan.
    Sterling, KDB, Mahrez, Grealish, Cantwell.
    Auba, Abraham, Samatta.

      Tierney a risk? Would limit villa players to just Grealish.

        1 year, 1 month ago

        Hes got samata as well but even so. I feel like just Grealish definitely is no bad thing

    2. HamezMace
      • 7 Years

      Why Tierney?

        1 year, 1 month ago

        A bit of a gamble but he could be a great pick if he gets decent mins.
        Back to full fitness now. Hoping to see him raiding diwn the left and whipping crosses in.

        1. HamezMace
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          He’s only started 2 games all season though, and that was back in November I think?

          Saka has started the last 6 in a row.

          Not someone I’d risk, especially at his price.

    My current team doesnt look too bad at all for 31 onwards. I’ll still have BB and WC in hand then for future GWs.

    I’m tempted to just play FH this week but it feels ‘a waste’ as we have unlimited transfers this week.

    Where do you guys stand on this?

    1. Original - Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Best chance to use BB, no more DGW's after this. FH in GW38+

    Wasn't planning on using my bench boost but starting to change my mind

    Hows this?

    Henderson Leno
    Egan O'Connell Saiss Boly Lascelles
    Mahrez DeBruyne Mount Cantwell Pepe
    Auba Tammy Aguero

    1. Young Lingard
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Decent if you feel (I see your a fan) that chelsea will be
      A as good as the early form
      B not a rotation risk

      I actually love Reece James in they play wing backs a quiet pick

    First time looking at FPL since this all began, unfortunately I can't say I've missed it! How have you all been doing?

  25. Indio

    How's this attempt looking for GW30+ please? (WCing for +31). Are there any good upgrade options if I go for the cheaper SHU lads instead?

    Leno/Reina
    Baldock, Stevens, TAA, Targett, Boly
    Pepe, KDB, Mahrez, Grealish, McGinn
    Aguero, Tammy, Jimenez.

      I like it. Love the Pepe pick, he could suprise people on this return

    2. CostaCoffee

      I'm not a fan of the Villa picks, maybe Grealish. But you've got 4 of them!

      1. Indio
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Sorry yep - Targett should be Lascelles, though I sense you might still think that's AV overkill!

  26. sirmorbach
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Now, one question still remains: Auba (c), KDB (c) or Kun (c)? Or Grealish (c) even?

    1. CostaCoffee
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Kun

    2. Champ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Kdb for me

    3. Young Lingard
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I’m going sterling because I near captained him maybe 8 times to failure in the opening weeks he owes me
      I consistently pick the wrong mane to captain might as well continue

    My BB team for GW30+ (12 DGW players and 3 SGW players)

    Henderson, Leno
    TAA, Laporte, Lundstram, Targett, Stevens
    Fernandes, Grealish, KDB, Saka, McGinn
    Auba, Jimenez, Aguero

    Any improvements?

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      You not worried about Tierney coming back

      1. Original - Wolves Ay We
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Yep

    2. JfA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I think a Fernandez of Newcastle has more chance of points than Targett, Ncl Sheff Utd has got 0-0 written all over it.

  28. JfA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    It's a shame Tierney is fit, Saka would have been a great low budget nailed on, I've had to down grade to Egan and O'Conell and put Mcginn in instead FH
    Henderson /Martin
    O'Connell/ Egan /Alonso (Lascelles Kilman)
    McGinn / KDB / Pepe /Sterling.(Doug Luiz)
    Auba /Aguero /Jota

    1. Young Lingard
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I think Saka is so highly rated by Arteta
      Tierneys season has had the injuries because it’s his first year there’s a chance they just ease him into things
      Sakas form was fantastic pre break

  29. Robson-Canoe
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Which combination do you prefer for GW30:
    A) Reina Ozil Mahrez & 3xSHU def
    B) Ederson Targett Pepe Fleck & 2xSHU def

    1. Champ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Second one

    Hi all - basic question as getting my head around the return! Can we make unlimited transfers, essentially preparing our team for game week 31+, while also playing free hit for this GW30+ DGW?

    So basically Im thinking of making the unlimited transfers to set myself up for after the DGW, while playing FH to smash it for the DGW - is that allowed?

    Cheers!

    1. Robson-Canoe
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      No if you FH this GW, your squad will then return to what it was in GW38

    2. Original - Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Nope. It's unlimited transfers or Free Hit, not both.
