Why I’m considering FPL players with one match in Double Gameweek 30+

Fantasy Premier League is back and there are so many things to consider for my team.

When the June 17th restart was announced I felt well placed with my team and chip strategy for the rest of the season. I am still sat at 4.5k overall rank ready to push on. Then came the unlimited transfers/new Wildcard rumours…

At first, I was firmly in the camp of not wanting that, I felt very much that this would detract from the fact that I was holding my Wildcard and would cost me the advantage that chip provided.

However, since the announcement last Monday I have changed my mind. In an ideal world, I always like to play my Bench Boost chip in a Double Gameweek. 

Gameweek 30+ is almost certainly the only opportunity left this season now to play that chip in a Double Gameweek, so using the chip this Gameweek does make sense. 

This means my Wildcard has become increasingly important.  Using my unlimited transfers to create a team specifically for Double Gameweek 30+ is achievable as I have the opportunity to use my Wildcard for Gameweek 31+ and remove the players I brought in for the double. 

Metrics

This strategy means that I am not having to compromise my long-term plans for the sake of the Double Gameweek, whilst also allowing me to (hopefully) reap the benefits of having a strong first-XI and bench for this coming Gameweek. 

Chip strategy is always important in the final weeks of a season because there is an array of Blank and Double Gameweeks to navigate. However, this season, with just one Double and no planned Blanks you might expect the chips to be less important.

However, the last week has shown me that, in fact, the opposite is true. The FPL community is buzzing with conflicting views on how to manage these weeks. We would normally have the form of both the teams and individual players to base our choices on, but after such a long spell without competitive football we have to focus our thoughts on the fixtures and what we expect of the teams in terms of their return e.g. relegation battle, European qualification and Premier League title race.

This means that while normally we would narrow our options down to these teams and then use the form of individual players to narrow the pool of FPL options to a more manageable level, Project Restart leaves us with the bottom eight and top nine clubs to choose from, leaving only a couple of mid-table teams who are safe and cannot reach the European spots that we give less focus to.

The recent Fantasy Football Scout articles recapping the best assets in each team have been invaluable reading (find links to them all below). They have drawn together all we know about each side and helped me work out where I need to prioritise for the squads I will be building for the Double Gameweek and beyond.

The relegation-threatened teams to consider for FPL investment

The teams chasing European football to consider

This wide pool of players to pick from, alongside a lack of pre-season friendly information, which we would usually have after such a long break from FPL, is another reason that I am keen to use my unlimited transfers to build a solid Bench Boost team. 

Once we have a full Gameweek of data to assess, it should make choosing a team easier.  This is especially true given the increase in substitutes allowed, both on the bench and allowed to come on to the field of play.

This unknown in terms of rotation risks and those likely to be removed before the magic 60-minute marks is another reason to use the unlimited transfers and then plan to play my official Wildcard the week after. Having every game televised will also be really useful in terms of FPL planning, as getting a full view of every game will enable us to conduct as many in-depth eye-tests as we want.

With Gameweek 30+ the only planned Double for the rest of the season it feels like most FPL managers will be choosing to play a chip to try and capitalise on the four teams who play twice.

Had Official FPL not given everyone unlimited transfers, this would have probably been a big week for Wildcards. But as it stands, FPL managers will be using their Bench Boost, Triple Captain or Free Hit chips instead.

To me, it seems likely that those without a Wildcard will Free Hit and those without will Bench Boost or potentially play their Triple Captain if they do not have their Bench Boost left. 

Here’s my strategy:

Double Gameweek30+ — Bench Boost

Gameweek 31+ — Wildcard

Gameweek 38+ — Free Hit (to focus on those teams with something to play for on the final week)

I then knew that I had the opportunity to fill my team with three players from each of the four Double Gameweek teams, meaning that it would be possible for me to have 12 out of my 15 players playing twice.

Whilst this appears like an appealing option at first glance one of the things I am always conscious of when dealing with Double Gameweeks is overlooking the single Gameweek players.

There are so many teams out there with only one fixture but they have the perfect combination of something to play for as well as a favourable fixture. For example, within the community, there is a lot of talk of removing the Liverpool assets.

However, I will be holding mine. Liverpool are playing in the Merseyside derby and are six points away from lifting the title so there does not seem to be any greater motivation for the likes of Mohamed Salah (£12.7m), Sadio Mané (£12.5m) or Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.8m) to score big Fantasy points than that.

With so many managers using their unlimited transfers to removing single Gameweek players, this could be a Gameweek where goals from Liverpool or Wolves assets actually become differential picks and give an advantage in mini-leagues.

Recapping the best Norwich players ahead of FPL restart

At the complete opposite end of the league, we have Norwich. Prior to lockdown, it was a tale of despair but a long break and some appealing fixtures. If the Canaries are going to have any chance of staying up they will have to win their next two matches.

That has made me consider Teemu Pukki (£6.5m) and Todd Cantwell (£4.7m) as really interesting picks for Double Gameweek 30+; they are usually involved when Norwich score. It is also worth checking out Ondrej Duda (£4.7m), who has made an impact since arriving at Carrow Road. David revealed some interesting data about him HERE.

Wolves are another team to watch out for over the next few days. It is, of course, a standard Gameweek for them but European football is still within their reach.

Options such as Diogo Jota (£6.4m), Raúl Jiménez (£8.1m) and Matt Doherty (£6.3m) could offer really good returns against West Ham at a time where many might be tempted to Free Hit them out or swap them as part of the unlimited transfer strategy.

Finally, I am also planning to use Double Gameweek 30+ to keep a close eye on Newcastle. The Magpies are one of those teams who sit in the middle of the league with seemingly little to play for but their fixtures are really nice and with rumours surrounding the future of the club, they could be really good options if they start well. Deciding what to do with Jamaal Lascelles (£4.3m) is one of my big decisions ahead of the deadline on Wednesday.

My current Bench Boost team looks like this:

There is a mix of Double Gameweek players who I think will get minutes across both of the games for their teams, as well as single Gameweek players who have the potential to do well.

The unlimited transfers followed by a Wildcard means that I can take some risks on the basis that I can reverse them soon after. Hopefully, this strategy should help me get back inside that top 1k overall rank.

    Good morning peeps!

    Which combo among below:

    A) Saiss + Martial/Ozil(who if you are choosing A)

    OR

    B) Doherty + McGinn?

    1. Hot Toddy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 23 days ago

      A with Martial

    2. kime67

      tbh i dont like either

    3. Steiger

      B

  2. Original Pirate Material

    Good article, needed something like this. However, has anybody considered this and how do you think it compares to the above article:

    30+ BB
    32+ FH (City v Liverpool cancel each other out IMO)
    33+ WC (more info available)

    1. Bossworld
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 23 days ago

      30+ BB
      32+ WC
      38+ FH

      Imo.

      1. JoeSoap
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Depends how you are set up but I like this option as I have a good team for 31. The problem is I will have to sacrifice DGW players GW30 to keep them and then by the time GW32 comes round I may be priced out of the team I want. Choices!

    Who you reckon scores more points for next 2 gws?

    A) Salah (eve CPL)

    B) Auba (mci bha sot)

    (plan to wc in 2 gws time)

    1. Ron_Swanson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Its a coin toss IMO. I'd probably lean towards Mo if I had to

    2. fcsaltyballs
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Auba should, depends how I you would use the cash to invest elsewhere?

  5. POLSKA GOLA
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Mané or Auba is my DGW dillema

    1. Pumpy Pro
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Im bordering on Mane/Salah if fit over Aubs

    2. fcsaltyballs
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Auba, gamble

      1. Pumpy Pro
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Would say that was a gamble being as though everyone and his dog own him 😉

  6. fcsaltyballs
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    I did a slow WC so my current squad is set up nicely but still unsure which approach to take, hopefully you can help me decide...

    Option 1: UT+BB (WC next week, or FH then WC later)

    Ederson
    TAA Doherty O'Connell Egan
    KDB Grealish Fleck
    Aguero Aubameyang Jimenez

    Leno Saiss McGinn Mount

    Option 2: FH (save BB for maybe 31+ and WC for whenever)

    Henderson
    Doherty Stevens O'Connell (or Lundstram if team leak)
    Sterling KDB Grealish Mount
    Aguero Aubameyang Jimenez

    Bench: Martin Guendouzi Kilman Simpson

    ????

    Thanks all!

    1. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      I'm in a similar situation. Going with alternative B and one of my drafts has same 7 attackers as you have. I think it's the better option as i don't want to wildcard as soon as 31 with very limited info.

      1. fcsaltyballs
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Yes, although on first pass FH in a week of UT seems silly, you need to factor in the value too don’t you.

        UT and BB is tempting, with WC (or FH then WC) shortly after is tempting, it seems much more sensible to FH30+, keep the value in the team and hopefully be well setup for 31+ with BB and WC still intact

        What’s your favourite draft looking like atm if you don’t mind me asking?

        1. Pukki Party
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Yeah i would lose around 1.5m if i use transfers to build for a BB, includes selling Salah.
          Currently on FH:

          Henderson
          TAA Lundstram Boly
          KDB Mahrez Grealish Mount
          Aguero Aubameyang Jimenez

          Bench is fodder and Cantwell.

          I'd prefer Sterling over Mahrez but that would mean dropping Trent or Auba i think.

          1. jackjones
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Even setting value aside, if you’re happy with your current team then the BB/WC approach seems a waste of a chip. I think it’s better to FH in 30+ and save BB and WC for later.

            1. Pukki Party
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 23 days ago

              Agree, WC is still the most valueble chip. Most who are saving FH also says it's for future injuries etc, but FH doesn't fix that. A WC could be of great use gameweek 33/34 when we have some info on form and what teams are on the beach etc.

            2. fcsaltyballs
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 23 days ago

              Correct I suppose, especially if you’ve done a slow wildcard to get a team you’re happy with

          2. fcsaltyballs
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Looks very nicely balanced mate, I’m nervous not having any Liverpool but I need to choose between either TAA McGinn or Doherty Mount

            You’re right about WC too, having that in say 4 weeks time could be invaluable!!!

  11. Mr. Mystic
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Saka or Cantwell?

    1. kime67
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      saka plays lb, not ideal

      1. Mr. Mystic
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Deployed more advanced recently though

    2. kime67
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      cant see that continuing, auba will play on the left for sure

    3. Peteski29
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Same dilemma, currently leaning towards cantwell

    4. Sacked in the Morning
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      I'm keeping Cantwell

  12. kime67
    • 2 Years

    Thouhts on man utd double up with rash and fernandes?

    1. _Ninja_
      • 9 Years

      Yup looks good for the run in

    2. kime67
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      i think so too but i dont really like doubling up

    3. Ron_Swanson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      I'm going for that

    4. Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Probably after Liverpool have won the league and I can drop one of Salah and Mane for funds.

  13. jorgenoj
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    A) Leno + Fleck (2xSHU defence)
    B) Henderson + Cantwell (3xSHU defence)

    1. Adamf1980
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      A

  14. wilson007
    1 month, 23 days ago

    A) Saka
    B) Cantwell

    Just for this GW.

    1. kime67
      • 2 Years

    Just can’t decide between Jimi or Abraham ... any strong views?

    1. _Ninja_
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Coin toss this week but i trust Jiminez more in general

    2. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      For one gw or longer term? Prefer Jimenez long term because he stays fit, Tammy maybe more explosive for one week

      1. Adamf1980
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        One gw ... on free hit. Trust Jimenez more too but Abraham tempting against that Villa defence

        1. Pukki Party
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          I haven't considered Tammy because i have Mount in my draft (posted above somewhere)

          How is your FH looking?

    3. FPL_DON
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Jimi imo

  16. Pukki Party
    • 3 Years

    On FH:

    A) Mahrez, Vardy
    B) Sterling, Jimenez

      B

    Sam you're getting to use fh and bb in the same gw, it's against the rules and shows exactly why unlimited transfers is wrong plus it has hampered those of us who made use of ft's during lockdown. Fully get why fpl towers have done it though so have to lump it. Chelsea are the best sgw team to hunt it's just who to pick. Mount probably the safest

    1. Johnny Leghorn
      • 3 Years

      Alonso for me. Chance of a return at both ends.

      Great to have you all back, looking forward to this 🙂

  19. FPL_DON
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    For all those fellow GW 31 Wildcarders, are you finding it hard to transfer out players you have a lot of value tied up in? I have a few such as Mane and DCL who I could conceivably want back with value in excess of 0.5m tied up in them.

    1. The_Fish
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Yes, it's why I'm keeping TAA, Bruno and Jimmy.

    2. Bun Rab L4D3
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      I would lose 0.1 on Salah, Ings & H Barnes, 0.2 on TAA, Fernades & Jimenez so almost totaling 1m (not including Kdb). And i will want almost all those players back so no free WC for me. FH it is.

      1. FPL_DON
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Similar position to you mate, interesting strategy. When would you play your WC?

    3. Sacked in the Morning
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Keeping TAA for this week, unsure about Salah and Vardy (i'd lose 0.3 on each), but could easily be Sterling and Aguero for the Double.....

      1. FPL_DON
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        It's such a tricky one mate, I think I'm going to take a hit on some players but keep some that I'll almost definitely want back

  20. Jellyfish
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Think I am ready to press the button on this BB team.....

    Ederson/Reina
    TAA Lascelles Lundstram C'Connell Aarons
    Mane Grealish McGinn Fleck KDB
    Auba Tammy Kun(c)

    G2G?

    1. FPL_DON
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Ederson a great pick, why Mane over Salah out of interest?

      1. FPL_DON
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Also, G2G!

      2. Jellyfish
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Keeping Salah prices me out of other transfers so he has to be the fall guy this week. Also injury concerns with Salah from what I've read

        1. FPL_DON
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Interesting, looks good pal

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Looks fine but I'd be wary of that midfield from 31+ on.

      1. Jellyfish
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        The team will be ripped up in GW31 (WC)

    is stevens worth the 0.1 ore than baldock?

    1. Dacra

      no

    Which one to leave on BB? WC in 31+
    Sterling
    Mane
    Aubameyang

    1. FPL_DON
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Auba

    2. Jellyfish
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Auba for sure

    I quite like my team, would it be a waste making loads of transfers to this to get a BB team and WC after?

    Pope (Mcgovern)
    TAA - Soy - Egan (Taylor, Williams)
    Kdb - Salah - Martial - Fernandes (Dendo)
    Auba - DCL - Vardy

    0.3 itb

    THinking FH for the double and reverting back to this is the best option, keeping BB and WC for later.

    I think I just nailed it.

    - GW30: Use unlimited transfers to get the team below and BB
    - GW31: FH
    - GW32: Use FT and survive
    - GW33: WC

    Leno - Henderson
    TAA - Alonso - Doherty - Lundstram - O'Connell
    De Bruyne - Mahrez - Grealish - Barnes - Cantwell
    Aguero - Jimenez - Abraham

    Your thoughts?

      Nice strategy, have you planned your FH team?

    2. Gav

      That is my strategy, although my BB looks a bit different. I'll probably shift Aguero to Rashford as my FT in week 32.

      Means i'll have Kdb and Arnold playing each other and Steven's with a dodgy fixture in 32, but I like the FT in 31 as I can go double Liverpool midfiled plus son.

    Interesting article.

    Will there be set times within (the real) matches when transfers can be made? And if so, when?

    1. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years

      probably not, but is there the rule that they can only stop the game 3 times for subs still, and have to make two at a time to use all 5? Has been used somewhere.

        Right, thanks. I meant substitutes not transfers oops

    Leno Reina
    TAA Doherty Egan Baldock Stevens
    KDB Grealish Mahrez Mount Cantwell
    Kun(C) Aub Samatta

    Thoughts?

    Is Doherty the best replacement for Alonso?

    Read that newc are in talks to buy him so I'm guessing Chelsea be reluctant to play him to avoid an injury.

      Yes he is

    Who do you prefer for GW30+ only?

    A McGinn
    B Doherty

    1. Hot Toddy

      Doherty

    2. Orynx

      Doherty. Grealish only villa player you should consider. They will get smashed in both games

      1. Wild Rover
        • 9 Years

        They will beat Sheff U imo

          *this may be wishful thinking as I'g going without Sheff U defs and hoping they concede for lols and a big diff

            Its a must win game for them and they've got McGinn back so I fancy them against the Blades.

    Henderson, Leno
    Targett, Saiss, Egan, Baldock,Lascelles
    Sterling, KDB, Saka, Grealish, Mount
    Abraham, Aubameyang, Aguero

    I prefer the look of a back four for GW30 as not keen on the likes of Fleck, Samatta, Saka and other cheap mids/forwards.

    (e.g. Something like triple Sheff U with TAA & Doherty.)

    1. Zilla
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Yeah that's my strategy as well

    2. kysersosa

      Not a bad shout. I did listen to one of the podcasts on here though that discussed defending was the hardest thing to replicate over the break. You can pass and shoot without making contact, but you can’t tackle. Might be nothing. But not loading up on expensive defenders may be a wise strategy. Though the ones you mention do have great attacking return potential.

      Just need to hope all my players start as only playing sub is Guendouzi!
