How each team’s rest periods could affect the final few FPL Gameweeks

We are now in the final few Gameweeks of the season and the minutes have been racking up for players in a congested schedule.

For this article, I look at the rest periods for each team in the final three Gameweeks to see if any match-ups stand out in particular.

I have outlined my methodology for the colour coding in my earlier piece.

The first thing that stands out to me is that most teams have a good recovery period for Gameweek 38+, which makes it ideal for the Free Hit chip.

We can, for example, expect Pep Guardiola to put out his strongest team as he would have had nearly five days after the Watford game in Gameweek 37+.

It also means that the final column (F) of total recovery period is a bit distorted, as certain teams have over a week off to prepare for Gameweek 38+. It’s just the FA Cup teams that are in the red in terms of the total recovery period, so let’s instead look at the recovery period for Gameweeks 36+ and 37+ (Column E).

Naturally, the teams with FA Cup involvement have the lowest recovery period – Arsenal (145), Chelsea (145), Man Utd (140) and Man City (160). The turnaround between the FA Cup fixture and Watford in Gameweek 37+ is particularly short for City (68) so it would be a surprise to see many players from the FA Cup semi-final start their league fixture against the Hornets.

Apart from the aforementioned four, Southampton (134) have a harsh schedule as well, something for us to keep in mind as owners of Danny Ings (£7.4m).

Now let’s have a look at the individual match-ups for Gameweek 36:

The teams at a disadvantage are highlighted in red.

Wolves, Arsenal, Spurs and Bournemouth have nearly a day’s less rest than their opponents.

Manchester United and Southampton (who play each other in Gameweek 35+) are particularly disadvantaged in terms of rest periods with their opponents having significantly more time to recover. If that match on Monday is as high energy as we expect, it could have a bearing on their performances and team selection in Gameweek 36+.

The Cherries are likely to find it difficult to go to the Etihad with less than 72 hours of recovery as well. City assets could once again be great picks if you can predict who Guardiola will start.

Now we move on to Gameweek 37+, which is in my opinion the trickiest week with the FA Cup ties preceding the league fixtures:

As mentioned earlier, Manchester City’s recovery period of 68 hours from their FA Cup fixture stands out. Maybe whoever starts against Bournemouth in Gameweek 36+ starts this one as well? I really don’t see Guardiola giving the likes of Kevin De Bruyne (£10.8m) a start against Watford with him likely to feature for 90 minutes against Arsenal in the cup.

Southampton have a recovery period of just 64 hours from the Brighton game, which might affect their high-intensity style – something to watch out for if you’re looking to possibly captain Ings that week.

Liverpool have over double the amount of recovery time as Chelsea and will be looking to end their last home game on a high. Selecting Mohamed Salah (£12.6m) as captain looks a legitimate shout that week given the Blues’ defensive woes.

The likes of Eddie Nketiah (£4.4m) will probably get a start against Villa given the short turnaround and his unavailability for the FA Cup semi-final due to suspension.

It will be interesting to see how much Ole Gunnar Solskjaer tinkers with his line-up with the short recovery period, too. We might need our benches in Gameweek 37+.

In terms of my own team, I was originally thinking of doing the Jamie Vardy (£9.8m) to Ings move but the Saints’ congested schedule has me a bit worried. Ings has been a machine of late but his fitness issues in the past are well documented and will they possibly flare up again with matches so close? The Saints’ pressing style could suffer too with low recovery periods. Something to ponder.

Good luck and stay safe.

    Think I've convinced myself into doing Mahrez -> David Silva -4. Fairly certain Mahrez will be rested so only need one return from Dilva for it to be profitable.

    1. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Only good for this game. Dilva won’t play the other two

      1. Tempestic
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 18 days ago

        Well this is just incorrect

      2. Greek Freak
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 18 days ago

        What's your reasoning behind that?

          Age vs Youth

      3. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 18 days ago

        Nonsense

      4. La Roja

        Crazy talk

      5. Larnell
        • 6 Years

        No way does he not play some part in GW38, his last city game

      6. Rinseboy
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 18 days ago

        most tip him to start last game also

      7. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 18 days ago

        Dilva is Triple Captain GW38 for many

        (Myself probably included)

        1. The Red Devil
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 18 days ago

          Getting him on FH

    2. redsallstars
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Looks a good move. Dsilva likely to start v bou and last game. His last game at the Etihad, Pep will give him a good send off

      1. ryacoo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 18 days ago

        Won't be his last game at the Etihad - they have CL still

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          4 months, 18 days ago

          Which game do you think Pep is going to indulge him more?

          A. Norwich
          B. FA Cup Final
          C. Champions League Quarter Final second leg

          Norwich is basically his testimonial

    3. Cruz88
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Personally looking to bring Mahrez in for the last two

  2. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

    Doherty+Sarr to Boly+Pulisic for free?

    The defender can be up to 5.6mil

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Yep

  3. Stormbringer22
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 18 days ago

    I feel like this GW I can easily either roll my transfer or take a -8... Any advice would be appreciated.

    KDB • Mahrez • Bruno • Martial • Willian
    Vardy • Ings/Greenwood (have both)

    A. Save FT and have the likes of Greenwood & Saiss cover a potential KDB & Mahrez benching
    B. Mahrez > Pulisic
    C. Mahrez + KDB > Pulisic + Sterling (-4)
    D. Mahrez + KDB + Martial > Pulisic + Sterling + Dilva (-8)

    1. antis0cial
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      E) Mahrez to Dilva or even Antonio, you have Chelsea cover.

  4. Tmel
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

    Mahrez > Dilva for free?

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Popular choice yes

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Yup - this is my move

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 18 days ago

        Not going for Sterling in the end mate?

        1. Tmel
          • 9 Years
          4 months, 18 days ago

          I know I'd like to if I could afford it.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            4 months, 18 days ago

            I’m thinking of
            KDB, Mahrez > Sterling, Dilva (-4)

  5. Rondon9
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    Any thoughts on my WC much appreciated

    Pope
    Saiss TAA Boly
    Sterling Pulisic Dilva Bruno Salah
    Ings Jesus

    Button - Greenwood Taylor Lamptey

    Cheers

    1. BERGKOP
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Don't like double Wolves defence and I don't understand the Lamptey love?

      Otherwise it's a great team.

  6. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

    Best move? 1FT, 1.4itb 🙂

    A. Vardy >> Jesus
    B. KDB >> Sterling
    C. Martial >> Pulisic
    D. Jimenez >> Ings
    E. Free Hit and get them all?

    1. Stoichkov#8
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      I want to know the answer too 🙂

    2. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      E but I’m wary of B

    3. The Man Pastore
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Probably E

    4. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Following this tread with interest. Particularly want to know where you land on the A, B, C options 🙂

  7. Stoichkov#8
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

    Salah > Willian/Pulisic for -4 crazy, right?

    1. Test Eagles
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Not crazy

  8. Gunner Boy
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

    Thoughts on the following?

    Jimenez + Hayden+ Aurier > Giroud + Dilva + Alonso for -8

  9. Don Kloppeone
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

    This is what my team is likely to be if I go ahead with planned moves for a -4. Looks good? No idea who I’ll captain!

    Pope
    TAA, Doherty, Kiko
    Salah, Sterling, Dilva, Bruno, Pulisic
    Vardy, Ings
    (Martin) (Greenwood, Lascelles, Simpson)

    Just contemplating about gw36 - which duo to bring in:

    Son+Jimmy for (-4) to

    a) Sterling+Greenwood
    b) Mahrez+Jesus
    c) Willian+Jesus

    1FT
    0.5 IDB

    1. redsallstars
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 18 days ago

      a or c, think mahrez will be rested before fa cup

  11. Kane Lane
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

    Will there be any team news given short space of time

  12. Blanka
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

    Jim and Rash to Jesus and whatever Chelsea striker starting? For a - 4?

  13. Catastrophe
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

    A) Pulisic, TAA (Rotate Egan/Basham*/Lascelles)
    B) Martial, TAA (Rotate Tarkowski/Egan/Lascelles)
    C) Martial, Azpi (Rotate Egan/Basham*/Lascelles)

    Really torn - advice appreciated! No other Chelsea players (have Salah, Fernandes, Greenwood).

    Cheers

        Ta. Done 😉

  14. Top Lad Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

    A) Mane to Sterling
    B) Vardy/Rashford to Jesus

    Why? Also prepared to either do a hit to get Willian/DSilva for Mahrez, or FH to deal with Aurier too

    1. Catastrophe
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Really tough. Probably A as out of those 5 players mentioned Mane seems the least up for it. But if Rashford blanks tonight/looks off the pace you could do B. Wouldn't transfer out Vardy.

    2. squits
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      I'm similar. Watching rashford tonight and then will decide based on his chances / positioning

    Let's play a game.

    Without looking at stats, name 3 footballers.

    - You will receive 1 point for every time they have hit the woodwork in the PL this season.

    - You will receive 1 point for every time they have scored a winning goal this season.

    Entries will close when I have hung up my washing. I will then give you your scores and announce the winner. Tie break question possible!

    Pope.

    Pulisic, Fernandes, KDB, Sterling, Mahrez.
    Vardy, Greenwood.
    Martinez, Saiss, Holgate, Nketiah.
    1ft, 2.2m ITB. BB in 37/38.

    1. Save the FT or 2. Vardy -> Ings?
    May save next GW then and 2 ft's going into GW 38.

  17. Top Lad Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years

    Rather DSilva or Willian/Puli in for Mahrez?

    Have KDB and no other Chelsea currently

    1. Rinseboy
      • 8 Years

      same boat ser below. Think Dsilva but tough. Might even do KDB to Pulisic for a -4

    2. squits

      I really don't think kdb starts. He is overdue a rest and fa cup semi to come

    On FH, do you think Tarkowski (WOL) could be a better option than Digne (AVL)?

    1. Tony Martial
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Yep

    2. Reyson
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Nope

      The fact that the answer is "Very possibly yes" is a sad indictment of what Lucas Digne has become

      Burney are just built & bred for cleansheets - limited footballing abilities, but they play to their strengths & my word they take it personally when someone scores against them

      Jesus for Jiménez or Sterling for KDB. Can see KDB rested for this gameweek before fa cup. Mahrez played alot of mins recently and sterling’s had his rest so my guess city will start with sterling jesus foden v Bournemouth

    Current team with my FT used.
    Would you take a -4 to get any Chelsea?
    KDB/Salah/Martial to Pullisic or DCL/Vardy to Giroud?
    benching headache with the latter.

    How about Auba for the last 2 games?

    1. Ain't No Holebas Girl
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Certainly looking to get him on FH38 and possibly Ings - Greenwood - Auba frontline for the last two. Depends how tempting Jesus becomes.

    2. redsallstars
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 18 days ago

      For sure, that’s the move I’m planning too. Especially if he’s still in with a shout for golden boot
