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.

    Would you rather to have Giroud or Antonio this GW?

    1. Ginkapo FPL

      Why would I want Antonio?

      1. Cheeto__Bandito

          haha?

            I'm not joking. Congrats those who got him in for Norwich, unfotunately he doesnt play them again.

            1. Cheeto__Bandito
                3 months, 12 days ago

                He had good stats pre-norwich

                He has seven attacking returns in four. Three in the last three if you want to discount the NOR game. He is the focal point for all West Ham attacks and is playing OOP. He plays 17th in the league and 19th in the league in his next three.

                He has a better xG and xA than Sterling, Bruno, Pulisic, Son, Martial.

                Because 2 of this last 3 games are at home against Watford and Villa, so whilst he maynot get 4 goals against them he should get good points and much more than Giroud will in the next 3

          2. antis0cial
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 12 days ago

            West Ham still need points to Guarantee staying up, playing against a Watford side who also need points, oop, returns in 3 of last 4 games, cheap.

            1. Ginkapo FPL
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years

              Cheap isnt important to me these days

                There were a few other points made there too! Plus villa 38.

            antoni

            This GW. Giroud.

          • Catastrophe
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 12 days ago

            Giroud purely because it's Norwich!

        • rnrd
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          With Ings being a contender of the golden boot and Ward-Prowe having missed the last pen, do you believe there's a chance Ings could be on pens duties for the reminder of the season?

          1. La Roja
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 12 days ago

            Yep

        • ZLATAN'S PONYTAIL
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          For those with Triple Captain, when and who do you plan on using it on?

          1. The Red Devil
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 12 days ago

            No clue, might put it on Sterling against Bournemouth & FH in 38
            Enables me to get 2/3 pool, Aubameyang, 3 certain city players

            1. Benteke Fried Chicken
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 12 days ago

              You 100% convinced sterling starts tomorrow?!

              1. The Red Devil
                • 5 Years
                3 months, 12 days ago

                Even pep isn't 100% sure 😛
                Would be weird for him to be benched for 2 out of last 3 games, think he starts but comes off early

            2. ZLATAN'S PONYTAIL
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 12 days ago

              General consensus seems to be FH in 38. Sterling likely to start tomorrow?

          2. edmac
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 12 days ago

            It's burning a hole in my pocket! Tempting by Sterling this week but seems risky. Maybe Foden or Pulisic this week, or Fernandes next week if Utd impress again tonight. I'm likely FH 38 so rules out those options for me.

            1. ZLATAN'S PONYTAIL
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 12 days ago

              Yup. I'm thinking sterling as well but there's rotation risk. Pulisic might be a good option though

              1. The Red Devil
                • 5 Years
                3 months, 12 days ago

                Same here, Sterling or willian/Pulisic TC

                1. ZLATAN'S PONYTAIL
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  3 months, 12 days ago

                  Bournemouth have something to play for. Norwich are done.

                  Makes me lean towards Pulisic

          3. Studs Up
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            3 months, 12 days ago

            Sterling 38

        • Stoichkov#8
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          Bruno, Foden, xxx, xxx, xxx
          Jesus, xxx

          Salah > Willian
          Martial > Pulisic
          KDB > Sterling
          Greenwood > Ings

          Worth using FH for those moves or keep FH for GW 38??

          1. ElliotJHP
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 12 days ago

            I think Palace away is a great fixture for United, hence I have swayed back to FH38

        • Cheeto__Bandito
            3 months, 12 days ago

            Dsilva or Foden?

            1. Pep Roulette
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 12 days ago

              DSilva. Might even play all the remaining PL games. Might be on pens.

              1. St Pauli Walnuts
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                3 months, 12 days ago

                What's that based on? Pens I mean.

            2. Miguel Sanchez
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 12 days ago

              D.Silva - for 38 at least where he will be centre of attention and chances put on a plate for him

              1. seanie3
                • 9 Years
                3 months, 12 days ago

                this, final game for City and its at home.. if they get a penalty guaranteed he will be taking it

            3. antis0cial
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 12 days ago

              Dilva

            4. Tonyawesome69
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 12 days ago

              I can see D.Silva playing in the BOU game, missing the Arsenal FA cup and playing the Watford and Norwich game.

              1. Benteke Fried Chicken
                • 1 Year
                3 months, 12 days ago

                I think maybe he plays arsenal then benched Watford.

                Either way he plays 36 and 38 which could be tasty.

            5. Amey
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 12 days ago

              I'm going with Foden

            6. Cheeto__Bandito
                3 months, 12 days ago

                Meant this week only which one

                1. Pep Roulette
                  • 3 Years
                  3 months, 12 days ago

                  Still DSilva

              • Catastrophe
                • 9 Years
                3 months, 12 days ago

                Dilva

            7. Pep Roulette
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 12 days ago

              Looks good?

              Will do KDB & Iheanacho to DSilva & Giroud for a hit.

              DDG
              TAA Stevens Saiss
              Salah Sterling(C) Bruno DSilva Antonio
              Giroud Greenwood

              Nyland Egan Lascelles Nketiah

              Giroud will become Ings/Aubameyang/Jesus in the last two gameweeks. And the rest of the squad will remain the same, hopefully. At least that's the plan.

              1. Tonyawesome69
                • 1 Year
                3 months, 12 days ago

                I would consider Dilva captain and rolling the Iheanacho transfer, play Egan

                1. Pep Roulette
                  • 3 Years
                  3 months, 12 days ago

                  Good point. Confused about the captaincy. I want Giroud this week as Chelsea cover, think he'll do good against that Norwich defence. One week punt.

                  1. Tonyawesome69
                    • 1 Year
                    3 months, 12 days ago

                    difficult one, I don't see Giroud scoring enough points to cover the hit especially for a one week punt. He doesn't have a high points potential.

            8. La Roja
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              3 months, 12 days ago

              Came up with this lot on FH so far:

              Ddg
              Digne Azpi Alonso
              Dilva Sterlo Antonio Pulisic Bruno
              Ings Jesus

              McCarthy Greenwood Taylor Cresswell

              1. Pep Roulette
                • 3 Years
                3 months, 12 days ago

                AWB instead of Digne. Connolly instead of Greenwood if you're benching him!

            9. Dušan Citizen
              • 6 Years
              3 months, 12 days ago

              Who do you think starts against Norwich - Abraham or Giroud?

                • 4 Years

                Giroud.

              2. Pep Roulette
                • 3 Years
                3 months, 12 days ago

                Giroud

                We hopefully will find out with a leaked lineup, so no need to guess

                1. Dušan Citizen
                  • 6 Years
                  3 months, 12 days ago

                    who normally leaks the chelsea line up and how soon before deadline.

                1-1 OG both sides.

              2. Amey
                • 2 Years
                3 months, 12 days ago

                Yes
                I see them managed vs Brighton though

                    Hahahaha it's FPL. And recently Pep Roulette has been a big part of it. Doesn't mean I support Pep or City.

                aint gonna happen is it? why is he going to be taken off early?

            11. Bruno Commando
              • 6 Years
              3 months, 12 days ago

              What to do with this lot for 36+?

              1) Jimi -> Ings
              2) Mahrez + Jimi -> Sterling + Greenwood for a hit
              3) FH this team

              Pope
              TAA // AWB // Saiss
              KDB // Bruno // Pulisic // Mahrez
              Rashy // Vardy // Jimi

              Bench: Krul // Egan // Lord // Cantwell

              1. Park the bus
                • 9 Years
                3 months, 12 days ago

                think you have risks over KDB Mahrez and Rashford. Vardy has a tough fixture too. I would FH if I was you.

                Keep KDB, ditch Mahrez, Rash, Jimi, Vardy. Get Sterling Silva Ings Giroud

                1. Bruno Commando
                  • 6 Years

              Would you keep Vardy another week? Not sure what to do here. 1FT 1.1m ITB. Thinking of maybe Mane to Sterling, but have no Chelsea either and also Mahrez/KDB bench risks?

              Can take a hit if needed

              Pope (3.9)
              TAA Doherty Aurier (Lascelles 3.9)
              Mane KDB Bruno Mahrez (Guendouzi)
              Vardy Rashford Greenwood

              Thanks all 🙂

                Possibly hold, Aurier won’t play due to his brother?

                  Oh really? What’s this?

                  Could a FH be worth it then?

                  Damn just googled that’s shocking. I wonder if he’ll play or not

                3 months, 12 days ago

                Similar (ish) predicament. I may try to get by with no Chelsea for the rest of the season. Mane to Sterling could be good or even Mahrez and TAA -> Sterling and someone if you could stretch. Tricky one.

                  Yeah. They haven’t exactly been that great anyway, despite the fixture.

                    yes not sure I would want to bring in a chelsea player for one game against norwich only to move them on again

                Why are you selling Vardy ahead of Rashford ?

                1. Top Lad Dakes.
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 3 Years
                  3 months, 12 days ago

                  I’ll let tonight decide that tbh. Rashford blanks again and he’s probably gone.

                  But mainly because at least united are scoring goals and the team is good

              4. Miguel Sanchez
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                3 months, 12 days ago

                Keep Vardy - will get another two or three goals in the final GWs

                Would sell Mahrez for one of D.Silva or Foden

                1. Top Lad Dakes.
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 3 Years
                  3 months, 12 days ago

                  Cheers mate, could be the move.

                  That rather than Mane to Sterling? Or would you FH, especially considering Aurier situation

                  1. Miguel Sanchez
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 4 Years
                    3 months, 12 days ago

                    Teams looks good enough to save the FH. Sterling is such a tricky one this GW, doubt Aurier plays again this season.

              For those of us lucky enough to have gotten big hauls with Sterling and/or Antonio, so much of how successful this week will be now rests on what Bruno does.

              Fernandes hauls and a great week turns acceptable. Fernandes blanks and it could be the defining week for sitting ranks before the end of the season.

              (could be being the key phrase as there are bound to be large hauls still to go due to how many goals are being scored in games)

              1. g40steve
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                3 months, 12 days ago

                I’m flying either way 🙂

                Got Martial, Greenwood & Bruno tonight.

              2. Tev
                • 3 Years
                3 months, 12 days ago

                Hopefully no pen or massive deflection tonight then

              3. Klaren
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                3 months, 12 days ago

                If you already own Bruno, it should still be a great GW for you regardless of how Bruno does (assuming your other players did OK as well).

                Bruno has about 150% EO in Top 10k. With Sterling and Antonio low EO, you'll still be significantly better off vs the average.

                1. Klaren
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 3 Years
                  3 months, 12 days ago

                  So even if he gets 16 points, it's only 8 points against you basically which isn't anything significant compared to Sterling/Antonio points.

                  If you don't own him, it's a different story though.

              What to do with Ederson?

              a) Just keep for the rest of the season

              b) Ditch and go YOLO with 3 City attackers

                • 9 Years
                3 months, 12 days ago

                A. It's been a pleasure owning him for all the clean sheets and assured starts!

                • 3 Years

                Keep him. 2 attackers will be fine! Many other options!

            17. Catastrophe
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 12 days ago

              A) Ings, Greenwood, Salah, Pulisic, TAA (Egan)
              B) Vardy, Greenwood, Salah, Antonio, TAA (Egan) (-4)
              C) Vardy, Greenwood, Martial, Pulisic, TAA (Egan)
              D) Vardy, Jimenez, Martial, Antonio, TAA (Greenwood)
              E) Ings,Greenwood, Salah, Martial, TAA (Tarkowski)
              F) Ings, Greenwood,Salah, Martial, Azpi (Egan)

              Edging towards E (Burnley defence/fixtures) or F (Chelsea home to Norwich) as I don't really want to lose Salah or Martial, but I have no Chelsea players for (NOR)!

              Cheers.

              I have a feeling Son IN should be a good move next GW vs Leicester.
              Counterattacking team vs Leicester do well

                3 months, 12 days ago

                Maybe Kane too? I known Harry isn’t on Solanke’s level but he might get one?

                1. ZLATAN'S PONYTAIL

                  • 5 Years

                  Kane playing OOP as DM in front of the back 5.
                  So Solanke is the better pick 😉

                Im taking my 13 points and selling him. Never getting an attacker under mourinho again

                  • 3 Years
                  3 months, 12 days ago

                  If he keeps playing in the position he did yesterday, he should do well even with Mourinho defensive tactics but it might be a one-off and they might move back to their previous formation.

                  1. Amey

                Salah - KDB - Mahrez - Fernandes - Pulisic
                Ings - Greenwood - Vardy

                1FT, 0ITB.

                Vardy > Jesus the best option here (and bench Mahrez)?

                Could do Mahrez > Foden also as I have my doubts that Mahrez starts.

                B) Pulisic

                Willian seems to get more double digit figures but Pulisic seems to be more popular.

                  So you FHing? I have same team as you but thinking to just make Vardy to Jesus and hope chelsea wont do a big damage plus Salah does something vs Ars same as United boys.

                    I’ve put myself a team together and will decide tomorrow. Didn’t want to rush it tomorrow. Will see how Man U look tonight (any injuries perhaps might sway it too) and any news tomorrow. Otherwise I’ll do Vardy >> Jesus. See my draft next page

                      Its a big hype about Chel vs Nor and Im scared as non owner but selling Salah and Martial may also end up bad.
                      Plus I remember when City played weak Nor and we had a big surprise there.

                        Yeah I’m 50:50 as it stands. A Bruno injury tonight as an example would make me to FH now I think. Let me know your thoughts tomorrow. Will you FH 38 if not? Are you happy with the fixtures then?

                Seemed to be struggling at the end of last game

                Or tarkowski?

                  burnley defence all day long instead of everton.

                Am I G2G for GW 36+?

                DDG
                Trent - Saiss - Egan
                Salah - KDB - Pulisic (C) - Fernandes
                Jesus - Ings - Rashford

                Subs: Henderson, Fernandez, Holgate & Hayden.

                Can't decide on my captain?

                Who's a better pick between willian & Pulisic? Willian on set pieces seems the better option, thoughts?

                  I dont own any sadly but think Willian with SP and pens is better pick. Somehow Pulisic is way more popular pick.

                    I'd think not and that Jorgingo takes pens

                  I’m probably going both. Unsure atm

                Kane -> Sterling for a hit? Would have to downgrade a defender (Doherty)

                Pope
                TAA Doherty Azpi
                Salah KDB Bruno Martial

                Willian for captain anyone?
                Got Sterling, KDB and Foden but just don't trust Pep.

                  Based on what you mentioned, I'd say why not!

                FH draft 2... all solid picks? Would make the Azpi/Alonso and Willian/Antonio calls before the deadline if the teams leaked.

                  DDG in goal, Azpi as safer (but wait for some leaks). Also Foden is sure to start but nothing wrong with Dilva if you prefer him.
                  Willian over Antonio but Antonio+Gru instead of Ings+Willian also looks nice.

                  Of the alternatives, I would have gone C)

                  Or maybe Sarr to Foden..

                5. Rashford to Ings/Jesus for free
                6. both of the above for -4

                Latest FH draft - focusing on the most likely City starters in this one. What do you reckon?

                Bruno, Foden, Dilva, Salah, Pulisic (C)
                Ings, Giroud*

                *assuming we get early lineup leaked with them starting
