Analysing the recovery period between matches and its impact on FPL

With the FA Cup fixtures causing a longer-than-usual Gameweek, we finally have some time to take stock of the landscape after a hectic period of three Fantasy Premier League deadlines in 10 days.

This is the longest break we will have for a while, with the next three deadlines coming thick and fast. We only have the TV schedule for Gameweeks 33-35 so far and certain teams have been afforded longer rest periods compared to others as the below table shows:

As mentioned in my earlier piece on the Christmas schedule, “recent research has shown that muscle injury risk increases by almost 20% when recovery time is reduced from six to three days”.

It concluded that fixture congestion and insufficient recovery time between matches are two of the major risk factors associated with injuries and suggested that players should have at least 96 hours between matches in order to recover fully. Beyond the 96-hour period, there were no significant gains observed.

Few teams are afforded the luxury of a 96-hour rest in this period, and the teams closest to that are in green in the table. Teams closer to 72 hours are in yellow and below 72 are in red.

The average total rest period is 265 hours so in the final column, teams around that number are in yellow, below that are in red, and teams well above the average are in green.

The problem with this table is that it exaggerates the total recovery period for the non-FA Cup teams. For example, Burnley have 134 hours of recovery for Gameweek 33+ which makes their total recovery period look favourable (277 hours) despite just 76 and 67 hours recovery for their next matches, but as quoted above, beyond 96 hours the recovery gains are minimal.

Players still ideally need 96 hours to recover for the next match even if they have had 100+ hours of rest prior.

I still wanted to include this table though as it does, however, emphasise how difficult the schedule is for Liverpool (205), Manchester City (210) and Sheffield United (209). Chelsea (231), Newcastle (227), Norwich (229), Spurs (233) and West Ham (227) have it tough as well.

The below chart looks at only the period between Gameweeks 33-35, ignoring the exaggerated rest periods for teams not involved in the FA Cup:

The average total rest period is 163 hours so in the final column, teams around that number are in yellow, below that are in red, and teams well above the average are in green.

Manchester United have 217 hours of rest between their three matches, the most favourable schedule. This is great news for those investing in their assets as rotation should be minimal and performance levels can stay consistent. Wolves also have a relatively relaxed schedule with 183 hours of recovery.

Chelsea, on the other hand, have just 161 hours of rest time. City and Liverpool have extremely compressed schedules with just 141 hours and 139 hours respectively; that’s over three days less than the Red Devils.

Everton and Spurs have reason to be aggrieved as well, with just 132 and 137 hours of recovery time respectively, the lowest in the league. Burnley, Newcastle, Sheffield United and West Ham assets will also need to be monitored with their short recovery periods.

Rotation seems far more likely for these teams in red and drops in performance levels are to be expected as well, especially for teams near the bottom of the table who can’t afford to rotate.

This also makes me ask the following questions:            

1. What to do with Liverpool assets?

Salah stars as Liverpool take advantage of Aké injury

The Reds have now clinched the Premier League title but still have seven league games to play. Klopp has already said that he views the remainder of this campaign as sort of a pre-season for the next one, given the short rest time between the two.

He’s also poured cold water on FPL managers’ hopes that the Reds will play strong line-ups with a view to achieving a record points tally.

In his latest comments, he said:

Getting these types of points tallies sounds pretty nice to me but I’m not sure it’s possible because six or seven of the remaining games we play in a very short period of time. Every three days we will need to make a lot of changes, we need to be lucky and make sure nobody gets injured. We need to be lucky there. If a player gets injured he cannot play the next five as well so that makes it really tricky for all of us.

This makes things a bit tricky for us FPL managers, as well, in terms of owning expensive midfield assets like Mohamed Salah (£12.6m) or Sadio Mane (£12.5m). Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.8m) is a bit less of an issue given his low price. They are all likely to start the Manchester City fixture given the long rest but right after that they play Villa with just 66 hours of recovery, then it’s Brighton with just 74 hours rest and then Burnley with just 65.

If we do hold our Liverpool attackers, we have to be careful with the captaincy. If Salah/Mane get benched in one game, they become captain material for the next game. Such patterns will have to be monitored closely, as well as the substitutions in the City game. Salah will no doubt be hungry for the Golden Boot but it seems unlikely Klopp will risk injury by starting him in all three games.

2. Do we put our faith in Jesus?

Manchester City have the best run of fixtures from Gameweek 33-38 and with Sergio Aguero (£11.7m) ruled out due to injury for that entire period, investing in Gabriel Jesus (£9.6m) is certainly tempting.

However, as the Chelsea fixture showed, the Brazilian’s starting spot is not guaranteed with Bernardo Silva (£7.7m) and Raheem Sterling (£11.7m) alternatives in that role.

Pep Guardiola has already gone on record stating his priority is the cups going forward and he will not want to risk his only recognised striker picking up a fatigue-related injury in such a busy schedule, so his minutes might be managed very carefully. Kevin De Bruyne’s (£10.7m) pitch-time will no doubt be monitored as well.

3. Could differences in rest periods affect performances?

In Gameweek 34, Spurs play Bournemouth with the former having 68 hours of recovery compared to the Cherries’ 121. Everton will have had just 68 hours rest compared to their opponents Southampton’s 93.

In Gameweek 35, Villa have just 64 hours of rest versus 114 for Palace. Everton have 64 hours to Wolves’ 88. Newcastle have 65 hours to Watford’s 89. Sheffield United have a full 24 hours less recovery time than their opponents Chelsea. Arsenal have nearly two days more recovery time than Spurs.

These differences need to be kept in mind as they will likely have an impact on energy levels and performances.

4.  Could switching between heavy hitters be beneficial?  

Like I mentioned earlier, a benching for a heavy-hitting asset like De Bruyne, Salah, Mane, Sterling etc increases their probability of starting the next game. So switching between them and handing them the armband depending on their minutes in the previous game could be rewarding. It is highly unlikely that any of them will start every match given their schedules.

My Team

Having looked at the schedule, getting a third Manchester United player into my squad will be my priority. They have the ideal motivation and near-perfect fixtures/scheduling.

Dominic Calvert Lewin (£6.4m) and Sadio Mane (£12.5m) will likely be making way for Marcus Rashford (£9.1m) and Christan Pulisic (£7.0m) with my two free transfers. Selling De Bruyne instead of the Senegalese is also an option.

Hope you found this information useful. Good luck and stay safe!

    Eyeing up this move next gameweek already...prefer Mahrez over Jesus I guess though.

    Richarlison + Aubameyang > Salah(C) + Jesus

    1. Athletic Nasherbo

      -4 I add

    2. Ini
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 days, 14 hours ago

      Not sure about a -4 for rotation risk, but ok otherwise.

  2. michaelington

    10 days, 16 hours ago

    I really don’t know what I’m doing anymore. So many games and all the rotation headaches. Might just copy rivals team just to win my mini league and have done.

    Thoughts on either of these 2 radical moves?

    A.....Fleck dcl and fernandes to kane foden and pulisic - 4

    B....Fleck dcl and Henderson to kane foden and Martinez - 4

    McCarthy (hendo )
    Taa Maguire boly (soy Stephens )
    Salah Kdb Fernandes martial (fleck)

    2. Ini
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 days, 14 hours ago

      If I’m being radical I’d go I B because it involves keeping Fer and getting Kane. Also no need to transfer Henderson for a -4

  4. Magic Zico
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Ings is on fire, MCI eve next two not too bad, benching v mun then last 3 fixtures are great BHA bou SHU ... damn could abandon my 451 plan

    1. Dr. Agabuse
      • 7 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Dont abandon.
      4-5-1 with Rash?

      1. Dr. Agabuse
        • 7 Years
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        Can get Ings for last three back

      2. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        Jimmy, 3 MUN already will need surgery for Rash

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      I am just going to stick to the 451 plan.

      Will have to downgrade a mid and def to get in Ings if I wanted bring him in.

      Just go stick at the moment.

      1. Dr. Agabuse
        • 7 Years
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        Martial or Fernandes alongside Rash?

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          10 days, 15 hours ago

          Martial

      2. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        Got enough ITB for one move for DCL and play 442, if 451 will be with Foden/Pulisic/Willian as 5th mid and DCL 1st sub

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      I sold him before he even played vs Watford. Will get him back maybe for the last 3 games depending on how Southampton are doing after those dreadful next few fixtures.

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        This is my original plan. Thinking again it's not that dreadful MCI eve is doable for him when on fire and bench him when mun

        1. Dr. Agabuse
          • 7 Years
          10 days, 15 hours ago

          I guess if you already have him

          1. Magic Zico
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            10 days, 15 hours ago

            Yeah true, save FT then for me 😉

    Look ok for a WC?

    Pope Martinez
    TAA Aurier Boly Saiss Holgate
    Salah Kdb Martial Pusilic Foden
    DCL Rash Jimi

    Got cover for future rotation I think.

    I guess I could get Doherty + Nket for Boly + DCL?

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Do you still have BB? If so that makes sense, otherwise that's a massive bench headache which you are almost sure to get wrong every week.

      1. Weasel Boy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        BB used

        Yeah I can see the benching headaches but there is probably gonna be a lot of rotation coming up. Gives me decent players off the bench if that's the case.

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          10 days, 15 hours ago

          I think with the 5 sub rule it's a disadvantage. Even rested players will come on for a few minutes.

    2. Dr. Agabuse
      • 7 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Yea Nket and Doherty

  6. Dr. Agabuse
    • 7 Years
    10 days, 15 hours ago

    541/532 until GW35 and WC
    TAA VvD Doh Alonso Taylor

    Or will DCL outscore VVD?
    Or

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      TAA AWB Doherty Aurier Egan here for 451, I was also thinking VVD for 541 or Boly/Saiss/Jonny.

    2. Weasel Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      nice Defence.

      Think DCL fixtures improve at 34+

    3. FOO FIGHTER
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Cannot see DCL outscoring VVD.

      I am on TAA Doherty Alonso and Aurier.

      Think that is as far as I will go.

            10 days, 15 hours ago

            Rotation but yeah he just had to bang in 2 goals. From today henceforth... I shall never bench Ings

              It's ok, he'll get benched for a rest soon.

                • 1 Year
                10 days, 14 hours ago

                Yeah maybe so. Need a player to get injured before kick off.

                No I don’t have fernandes

      2. DeathAngel

    Is it time to ditch Sarr?

    1. olidooley
      • 7 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      My question exactly.....how did he look against SOU?
      Didnt see the game

      I have 2 FTs too

      1. Essential
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        Didn't watch it, but from the highlights Watford looked pretty bad

        Looked like he would have had a good chance to score if Bednarek didnt decide to score an OG just infront of Sarr

        Sarr xGI 0.23
        Ings xGI 0.20

        1. olidooley
          • 7 Years
          10 days, 15 hours ago

          Interesting....straight swap to Mount possible....but Sarr has 3 great fixtures and very important ones after Chelsea

            Think i will keep

            I can play Saiss Ayew or Ward over him next GW

        Sarr isn't the problem, Watford is, its time to go and if you can afford to go pulisic then go depending on how he reacts on this calf injury

          I think he looked decent last game and got better as the game went on and I feel his goal will give him a lot of confidence. Plus his fixtures are good hes nailed on pens and has pedigree.

          The other thing is most people with a spurs asset have son or bergwijn or Alli so not likely to make the move as fast or easily as you can make it.

      What?.cant be

      How does he score two from chances that accumulate to let him score like this 1/20.

      Were his goals an accidental cross and a screamer drom 36m?

    Just done DCL to Ings. Don’t normally knee jerk but his form is too good to ignore any longer.
    I thought this community was all for form over fixtures but appears not reading a lot of posts.

    Consider this, Ings has scored against Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal, Spurs, Leicester and Wolves this season.

    Surely his motivation is to get that golden boot.

    1. Soto Ayam
      10 days, 14 hours ago

      I'm thinking of getting rid for his next two at least which should free up some cash to bring in Salah next week

  14. Tony Martial

    Leno and Vardy close to a drop

    Might pull the trigger..

  15. Dr. Agabuse

    WC late and DCL Ings for the last three fixtures!
    But going 541 now with 3 Pool
    if DCL doesnt score vs Lei
    and Spurs seem solid at the back again

      Only if you can do something good with the extra cash. I like Fernandez as he does well with a BP or two

      Looks like you don’t have any now either. If you want to go all out diff if chasing why now.
      But I would say I rather KDB Mahrez and Foden from the City attack over Jesus

        Thank you your probs right

        How about DCL Vardy Leno
        To
        Ederson Rashy Ings and that leaves me enough to do D.Luiz to Foden the following week!?

          Sounds better to me.

    Which pairing will score more next week only

    A) Salah (VILLA), Maupay (nor)
    B) Kane (EVE), Pulisic (WAT)

    Thoughts please

    Guessing A depends a lot on how many minutes Salah gets against city this week

    Many thanks

      Good, but ings has 2 crappy fixtures

      1. Tony Martial
        • 1 Year
        10 days, 14 hours ago

        I agree but he’s in Flying form!

  20. Tony Martial

    Guys is Ings seriously a good option with them fixtures!?

    1. Soto Ayam
      10 days, 14 hours ago

      I'm probably gonna get rid or bench if not

  21. Albrightondknight

    Auba is -85 probably won’t drop but right now exact cash for Auba and Greenwood
    To
    Rashford and Giroud for -4

    Would leave the team below and would also allow Bruno to Mahrez the week after.
    But is there a better way to spread the cash as benching 1 of this front 8 -even Foden- would be difficult or is better to have a strong bench for no shows this time of year?

    Patricio Button

    TAA Doherty Aurier Holgate Lascelles

    Salah Son Martial Foden Bruno

    Rashford Jiménez Giroud

    1. Tony Martial
      • 1 Year
      10 days, 14 hours ago

      Giroud!?

      Really?

        Great fixtures 33-36 not like Che have nothing to play for. He looks to be ahead of Abraham right now for premier league games. I think he is pretty good - playing second fiddle at at least 2 clubs must be hard.

        1. Albrightondknight
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          10 days, 14 hours ago

          And 4 attacking returns in last 5 premier league games.

          1. Tony Martial
            • 1 Year
            10 days, 14 hours ago

            Minutes are heavily Managed though and he could be dropped at any instant

            1. Albrightondknight

              10 days, 14 hours ago

              That is true. Any other ideas? I always knew Auba was a one week punt with C, that would probably cost be -4.
              Also current 3 utd makes it hard to make some moves without taking a hit.

              1. Tony Martial
                • 1 Year
                10 days, 14 hours ago

                Maybe he is a good option then as there is actually no one in that price bracket at all!

                1. Albrightondknight
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 4 Years
                  10 days, 13 hours ago

                  Actually think I will just do Auba to Giroud and leave a lot ITB and avoid the hit. I will have a bench headache as it is.

    1. jtreble

      Probably.

    Thinking of BB GE33.

    Be grateful if you could RMT and point out any glaring errors
    1 FT & 0.1 in bank

    The Wolves v Arsenal fixture might mean limited returns for Saiss & Nketiah and Foden isn't guaranteed a start but think that's work a risk. Possibility of rotation for KdB and Salah with 3 days between GW42 and GW33

    Ryan
    TAA, Lascelles, Dunk,
    Salah, KdB, Martial, Fernandes
    Rashford, Jiménez, Nketiah
    Pope, Foden, Saiss, Aurier

      I actually really like your team but in the long term the double Brighton defense has got to go!

      Bench is great too!

      Could you help me bellow?

    Leno Vardy and D.Luiz

    I am looking to WC and then BB the following. Have gone without Salah in this draft and it feels a bit exposed.

    Pope - Martinez
    TAA – Siass – Holgate – Lascelles – Doherty
    Son – KdB – Bruno – Martial – Foden
    Jimi – Ings – Rash

    What do you think? Or any suggestions?

    1. Freshy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      10 days, 13 hours ago

      I need to burn a transfer before next GW

      Pope / Martínez
      TAA / Doherty / Saiss / Lascelles / Taylor
      KDB / Salah / Son / Fernandes / Hayden
      Rashford / DCL / Jiménez

      Been considering
      Salah & DCL to Martial & Kane
      Dropping Salah for AV isn't smart

      Maybe Martinez to Button since Ive spent my BB

      I'd like Rashford and Pulisic.

    owned him for most of his hot patch earlier in the season but cannot believe Danny Ings is one goal off golden boot along with 34 bonus points this season, top of the league
