Should Fantasy managers ever ‘triple up’ on a team?

The 2014/15 FPL champion, Simon March, asks if owning three players from the same Premier League club is advisable.


Fantasy Premier League has seen plenty of iconic duos: Carroll and Barton, Drogba and Lampard, Vardy and Mahrez, the list goes on. These are players who, while playing in the same team, both managed to score substantial points and frequently combined to score those points by assisting each other’s goals. If you had both in your FPL team at their peak, chances are you were doing well. Everyone loves a good double-up.

But what about triple-ups? They’re popular, too, but is it really a good idea to select three players from the same team? That’s the question I’ll be discussing this week.

Among the few firm rules that I rigidly observe in FPL is this: ‘Never triple up on a team who are likely to finish mid-table or below’. I learned this lesson in the 2015/16 season when my title defence was upended early on by my now-curious decision to Wildcard in three Swansea players (though, in my defence, this was a popular move at the time) just before they went from surprise early-season title candidates to winning just two games in their next 17. In my opinion, mid-to-lower table teams will rarely, if ever, sustain the form required to justify owning three (non-bench fodder) players or, indeed, they would not be mid-to-lower table teams.

While I’m unlikely to be talked out of this position personally, the question of whether tripling-up on any team is a good idea is more controversial.

On one hand, you have the philosophy that, if a team tends to score more goals than anybody else, and/or keeps more clean sheets, as per Liverpool or Manchester City in the past few seasons, it’s a good idea to have as many players from that team as possible. There is no doubt that, at times, this is a good move and, those who do time it correctly will no doubt profit as a result. Where such a team has a Double Gameweek, there’s even more reason to believe in the potential of a triple-up.

There are, however, a few problems associated with tripling up with players from the top teams. Firstly, it tends to be expensive. Man City may, for example, score more goals than most teams this season and they might also keep more clean sheets, but to triple up on them could cost 25-30%+ of your overall budget. At that point, the question is no longer just: ‘Will they score me enough points?’ It becomes: ‘Will the rest of my team be good enough to compensate if they don’t?’ There’s usually a good chance that a savvy FPL manager can find similar returns for less if they shop around.

The big exception to all of this is when a team who were expected to be mid-to-lower table end up performing really well throughout the whole season. The most obvious example of this phenomenon is 2015/16 title-winners Leicester from which you could purchase three of the highest-scoring players in the game that season for roughly the price of a McDonald’s Happy Meal. Of course, such teams are most notable by their rarity.

Why else could tripling up be ill-advised? One suggestion lies in the mechanics of how scoring occurs in football generally. A player scoring is always the product of their own ability to score, their team’s ability to provide them with opportunities to score and their opposition’s ability (or inability) to stop them from scoring. However, there is also a temporal aspect to this equation. A match only has 90 minutes (or sometimes 100 minutes if you’re a certain Manchester-based club…) and, thus, your triple-ups are sharing that time between them. They cannot all score points at once even if two combine for a goal and, therefore, their ability to score is naturally limited. This might not be a problem if the team they play for scores loads of goals every match, but history tells us that this is not sustainable over time, even for the very best teams. Players and teams go in and out of form, fixtures become more difficult and, when you triple up, all three of your players are affected by these same conditions.

This issue may be less true of defenders as clean sheet points are attributed equally across a defensive line. However, as a result of this, their point-scoring potential is interdependent, one goal conceded affects them all. Over a long enough period of time, this might not matter in terms of points scored (i.e. Liverpool defenders may keep the most clean sheets in total over a season) but, again, this raises the question of value for money and, particularly, whether the funds tied up in expensive defenders could benefit your team more if invested elsewhere, or by being more liquid.

How Liverpool's defensive assets compare after their FPL price changes

Finally, while some believe that having multiple players from a single team means they are likely to get some points whatever happens, the opposite could actually be true. Because they share many of the same conditions, teammates may be more prone to rotation at the same time (e.g. ahead of a big Champions League match), illness (think Spurs and ‘Lasagna-Gate’), expected or unexpected match cancellations (…sigh), tough fixtures or even just teams losing form, as even the best ones will sometimes do. Tripling up will always compound these kinds of risks.

In conclusion, while I am not personally a big fan of tripling up on players from a single team, I can see that there are instances when it can pay off, if timed correctly. There are also exceptional circumstances where it can be a practically essential, no-brainer, value move (e.g. Leicester 15/16) to have three players from the same team. Tripling up in a Double Gameweek or Blank Gameweek may also be well worthwhile and, finally, some of the limitations that apply to attacking players in a triple-up may not apply as much to defenders, making a defensive double or triple-up arguably more of a viable move. 

However, by virtue of the players all sharing the same conditions and constraints on scoring and the typically high cost of tripling up on the best teams, the practice of tripling up in FPL will almost always be a higher-risk strategy that, as a result, is less likely to pay off over time than a broader and more flexible strategy.

In my eyes triple-ups are a lot like buying an expensive goalkeeper; it makes sense at the time, they’ll probably score you some points, but give it a few weeks and you’ll always start to think whether you could be doing something better with the money.


Simon is a former FPL world champion, claiming the coveted price in 2014/15. But there is more to this man than one season of good fortune. Since 2009, Simon has finished in the top 7k four times, only ending up outside the world’s top 60k once in an 11-campaign career.

    Already have Chilwell. Would it be wise to double up with James? If not, who else would you go for? My other defenders are Konsa, Saiss, Kilman. Obviously looking to finally get rid of Saiss this GW for -4.

      Think it's a decent shout considering how attacking Chelsea full backs are and offer good clean sheet potential

      Yes, I have. He's clearly first choice now and offers a lot more than the likes of Dias. On the 5-game projection tool even with the tougher fixtures he's almost top in terms of value (behind the two Arsenal defenders, whom I'm not sure count given the form they're in).

      I would go James. I have had him from week 1 and seeing him play I think he could put score chilwell across the season.

        The ridiculous price changes are ruining FF this year...

        How has Grealish not dropped but Cancelo has?

        1. ZimZalabim
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          cancelo - 98 or -99 when i last looked so not surprising that he dropped
          Grealish could be price locked or because of FHs or WCs the delta was skewed

        I disagree strongly with the majority of this article. The rationale, conclusion, application. I'm quite surprised by it, considering the contributor.

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Agree. At the very least, it's strongly amiss to make zero reference to Aston Villa this season - value at the back and attacking, and as a side that just avoided relegation last season, priced very nicely. I've also tripled on sides like Southampton in their cheaper guises in order to fill my bench with viable but not first-choice starters.

          1. Deulofail
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 14 days ago

            Yeah.

            (1) If you own 2 outfield players from the same team, you won't be able to rotate them based on fixtures if they are from the same team. (You can't rotate GKs with outfield players anyway).

            (2) They will also both miss a game in the same gameweek if it is postponed, and be more likely to miss through illness if another player on their team is ill (GK included).

            Other than that, there's nothing much to say about doubling and tripling up. Players are independent point-scorers. Owning KDB does not affect the points you get from Mahrez just as it won't affect the points a rival gets from Mahrez.

            Bringing in other factors like price is doing just that. Bringing in other factors. It's also expensive to get 3 expensive players from different teams.

            People get all muddled up by trying to account for ownership and rank. Ultimately, these things are not in a causal relationship with the points you will score next gameweek, and so 'risk' is not affected, except through problem (2) above, and I guess, problem (1) to the extent that you can't adjust your rotation to the team's form (but rotation is rarely part of the equation, especially for the premium assets the article is talking about).

            Can't think of any other causal relationship between player points and the ownership of another player (or two) from the same team.

              Nicely put.

            2. Deulofail
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 14 days ago

              Correction to the last point: I should say:

              There is no causal relationship between player points and the ownership of another player (or two) from the same team.

              I can't think of any other causal relationship between your FPL team's points and the ownership of more than one player from a team.

          I can see what he is trying to say but to beat the template you have to take on risks in areas that you can see outperforming the template. For example anyone who had two Liverpool defenders and Salah or Mane for the last two seasons did well.

          It depends on the situation really. There are some drawbacks to tripling up like squad rotation when there's a tough fixture and this year in particular when there is a risk of games being postponed due to COVID.

          1. Deulofail
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 14 days ago

            Agreed. It's just about squad management each week. Will the team have the fixture you planned for them to play and will the players show up or stay in bed due to covid or they're on strike. All relatively low risks. Fixture postponement can even be somewhat predictable, depending on the reason, and you can factor that into the decision to buy a player, in the knowledge that it will affect another player in your team as well.

            It's quite clear that buying the 2 highest scoring players over a period will give you the 2 highest scoring players for that period. Whether or not they're from the same team is irrelevant. Same for 3 players. Obviously we don't know in advance, so we can guess or project. The same logic applies.

          Good man, I logged on, read the article and couldn't resist a cheeky comment below as the article was poor at best imo. Too much FPL content and coverage in an unpredictable season was bound to lead to such articles

        Benching dilemma play one of
        Pickford v Burnley. Pickford is not playing with any confidence atm but Burnley are not scoring or even attacking much.

        Fabianski v Man United. Fabianski is playing well and has a good defense in front of him however United have the fire power to breakdown any defense and score "if" they play well.
        Presently playing Pickford.
        Comments appreciated, thanks in advance.

        1. Mile Plankton

          You have too much money invested in GKs.

          Play Fab imo. Pen save on cards.

        2. Bojam
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Play Pickford probably. Mess of your own making though - how have you ended up with two expensive(ish) keepers in the first place? Recommend you downgrade one (Pickford) and invest the money elsewhere asap.

            lol. Yes I owned Pickford from the start of the season and when I brought Fabianski in it should have been or Pickford not Button. Money is not my issue atm, TV is 103.5 and I have 0.5 itb

              Fair enough. Guess it's a coin toss this weekend. Reckon Pickford has a better chance of a cleansheet but Fabianski could do well with save points etc. Good luck!

          Cancelo to Dias will cover the cost of the hit with a 2 point gain on top ( imo) Williams needs to go so why not Ogbonna or Masuaku but that move may not pay back for a couple of weeks.

          Not really a mess- caught a bad break - coronavirus issues

          Mane is due to a big game. He’s too elite to keep striking out

        I would like a City defender, but is there a case of don’t buy/sell any City defenders with upcoming fixture congestion and kind of “easy” PL fixtures, that would surely allow Pep to rotate even more.
        What do you guys think. Thanks!

          I was dead set on cancelo until the last game, he been playing well and even he got dropped. However Pep does have a soft spot for Mendy it seems but I’d steer clear and get double Chelsea def

        Evening all,
        1FT and .4itb

        Martinez-Forster
        Robbo-James-Lamptey-Coufal-Mitchell
        Bruno-Son-Grealish-Jota-Bissouma
        Kane-Vardy-DCL

        I feel like going without City is going to hurt but I think Son and Kane could score well and at least one would have to make way for Mahrez/KDB. It really feels like a 1 week city punt, then next week Liverpool/Spurs and then back again....can’t decide

        1. Bojam
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Similar team to mine and similar issues. I'm not keen on dropping either of the Spurs assets but that makes it difficult to bring in City attack unless I go with Mahrez. But that seems like a risky short-term punt. I'm not that keen on Vardy so in your position I'd probably be looking to ship him out to use the cash to upgrade elsewhere. But maybe not until next week with 2FT. So bank the transfer?

          Bruno

          The FPL tribe is going to KDB but Bruno has the magical luck to score 15 points with deflections, PKs, and missed headers

          Kids that didn’t get burned with Vardy vs Fulham are going Vardy vs Sheffield. The victims think Sheffield might snake a 1st victory like Fulham did

          Would be quite tempted by Kane

            no. can't find one.
            unless i trade kdb/son/ziyech, which I don't want to.

          Debating this myself, I think it’s close this week and next week I’d want Son back

        Cancelo to Reece James for -4? have Zouma as well

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          If you need a playing defender this week I’d do it but if not wait until next week

          1. Keep Calm and Play On
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 14 days ago

            Actually yeah I’d do it, Chelsea likely CS so you’re probably 2 pts up and even if Leeds score James may get a return, especially if Giroud plays

        2. All about the galacticos

          wouldn't be confident of a chelsea clean sheet

        What to do here guys? Not usually stumped for the right move but I've got 2FT and I need to use (at least) one tonight. 1.1m ITB.

        Martinez* (Forster)
        Robbo, Chilwell, Dias, Lamptey (Coufal)
        Bruno(C), Son, Rodriguez, Soucek (Grealish*)
        Kane, DCL (Watkins*)

        Possibilities include:
        (1) moving Rodriguez to Mahrez/Jota
        (2) moving Forster to a playing keeper (e.g. McCarthy/Meslier)

        Other suggestions very welcome!

        1. Bojam
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Can anyone help a brother out here?

            Both look fine
            World be tempted by the GK one as you should gain 2+ points pretty much automatically
            Rodriguez move could maybe backfire

            1. Bojam
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 14 days ago

              Think you're probably right. McCarthy in?

        2. Keep Calm and Play On
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          1 with Mahrez, then get Salah nw

        3. Mile Plankton
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          I'd get a playing GK as a priority, Like McCarthy the best.

          As for Hames, I've been advicing people to keep him over the last 2 weeks and it didn't turn out well. So, I reckon you ditch him too. Jota in for me.

          1. Bojam
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 14 days ago

            Yeah I've been hanging on to Rodriguez and advising others to do the same lol. He could've had a haul last weekend and things would look quite different. Not worth keeping for one last hurrah vs Burnley? He's guaranteed to start and Jota could be benched.

          Hi guys, need some opinion on this
          Watkins > Brewster
          Amguissa > JWP
          Worth a -4?

          1. The White Pele
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 14 days ago

            No

          2. Mile Plankton
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 14 days ago

            Hardly

        • Mile Plankton
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Ok, I decided not to take a hit.
          So it's come to this: Hendrick -> up to 5.1 mid
          A) Soucek
          B) Dani Ceballos
          C) 4.5 dmc (Romeu, Anguissa, Bissouma) and bank 0.3

          I kinda like the Ceballos punt, but I need him to play since I'll have 3 Villa players on the bench.

          so, Sterling will play this week?

          1. Mile Plankton
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 14 days ago

            I reckon 30 minutes.

          Think this is it.for the WC.
          Grealish in for Mahrez in 2/3 weeks probably.
          Any tweaks? Had Lamptey/ Grealish instead of Webster/ Mahrez but fancying Mahrez now.

          McCarthy.
          James, Chilwell, Webster.
          Jota, Salah, KDB (c), Fernandes, Mahrez.
          Welbeck, DCL, Bamford.
          Forster, Bamford, Dallas, Mitchell.
          0.0m ITB.

          'Triple ups are a lot like buying expensive goalkeepers... '
          Sums up the laziness and nonsensical take of this article. FPL content has become poor this season I've found (perhaps I'm getting old and disgruntled) and apart from FPL Wire and Black box the rest can be parked for me for the forseeable.

            Triple ups for me is the best and safest way to go all out differential without any compromise 😀

              triple ups are risky and need to be brave to do them but they can be great especially short-term through a run of good fixtures... def nothing like buying an expensive keeper lol

        • AF90

          Should I do Martinez -> McCarthy for free or just save FT?

              Forster so playing with 10

                Can you sell him?
                Martinez looks at a decent run after the bye.
                Or maybe get Mendy untill January WC.

        • OptimusBlack

          1-Double up with Chilwell & James

          2- Who To C ?
          A- Vardy

            Double up is fine.

            KDB (c)

          Gtg? (Just the cash for a hit after the deadline for Foden/Kane TO Salah/Bamford)

          McCarthy
          Cancelo Chilwell Lamptey Taylor
          KDB Fernandes Foden Soucek

          Zouma or James long-term?

          1. Mile Plankton
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 14 days ago

            Zouma

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Taking a risk that Harry will be fit this GW, as I think Son & him could do well against Arsenal. Then moving them out to fund Salah (C) v Fulham.

          Does the following look ok? Thanks

          GW11 Soucek > Jota
          GW12 Kane > Wilson & Son > Salah -4

          McCarthy
          Lamptey, KWP, Dias
          Fernandes, Son, KdB(C), Soucek
          DCL, Kane, Bamford

          I presume there is no news about when this Newcastle v Villa game might get rearranged for is there? It might be difficult to fit it in before Christmas I was thinking now

          1. Mile Plankton
            • 8 Years

            No chance before Christmas. Newcastle have game every 3 days from GW 12 to GW 16.

                Unless they fit it on next Wednesday, which is like 4 days from now.

          In a pickle, considering using the WC

          McCarthy
          Zouma, Mitchell, Justin
          Salah, Bruno, Son, Biss
          DCL Bamford Kane

          Steer Grealish Taylor Lascelles

          1FT, 1.5 in bank

          1 - Lascelles --> Ruben Dias
          2 - Grealish--> Jota or Mahrez
          3 - Salah --> KDB(C)
          4 - Bruno -->KDB(C)
          5 - Salah and Lascelles --->KDB(C) and Ruben Dias (-4)

          1. Bojam
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 14 days ago

            Bringing Dias in seems sensible. So either 1 or 5. But if you ship Salah out this week you'll probably want him back for Fulham next week.
