Fixtures

When will the Blank and Double Gameweeks take place in FPL this season?

Monday’s surprise announcement that the EFL Cup final would move back two months has caused a stir in the Fantasy world, as it would seem to have implications for the Blank and Double Gameweek picture.

First off, there will very likely be a Blank Gameweek 33, in which one or two Premier League fixtures will be postponed depending on how many top-flight clubs progress through the quarter-finals and semi-finals of the EFL Cup.

Secondly, Gameweek 26 will, barring any further weather or COVID-related postponements, have a full complement of 10 Premier League games taking place on the last weekend of February.

The free midweek after Gameweek 26 may well have accommodated any postponements from the weekend had the EFL Cup final clash occurred as originally scheduled.

Instead, it may now host other rearranged games, be it the outstanding fixtures from Gameweeks 1 and 11 and/or other cup-related postponed matches.

So here’s what we know about the Blank/Double Gameweek picture so far…

WHICH BLANK AND DOUBLE GAMEWEEKS ARE SO FAR CONFIRMED?

Blank Gameweek 18 and Double Gameweek 19 have been confirmed by Fantasy Premier League and look as follows:

WHICH FIXTURES REMAIN OUTSTANDING?

Three postponed fixtures (two from Gameweek 1 and one from Gameweek 11) are yet to be rearranged. They are:

  • Burnley v Manchester United
  • Manchester City v Aston Villa
  • Aston Villa v Newcastle

It’s possible that two of those could still fall within Gameweeks 18 or 19, thus adding to the Double Gameweek 19 fixture bonanza or meaning that fewer teams will be without a match in Blank Gameweek 18.

But other dates are possible, as we’ll discuss below.

WHEN COULD OTHER BLANK GAMEWEEKS OCCUR?

There are two Gameweeks in which the Premier League schedule clashes with a cup competition and there is no ‘free’ midweek afterwards. These Gameweeks, therefore, could be ‘blanks’:

  • Gameweek 29: The FA Cup quarter-finals take place on the same weekend. An international break subsequently follows, so any postponed league matches couldn’t take place in the ensuing days. Anywhere between zero and eight league games could be affected.
  • Gameweek 33: The EFL Cup final takes place on the same weekend, with the Champions League and Europa League semi-finals scheduled for the following midweek. Between one and two league matches will be affected.

WHEN COULD OTHER DOUBLE GAMEWEEKS OCCUR?

  • Gameweek 26: The most obvious time to stage any outstanding matches will be Gameweek 26, given that no domestic or European competitions are scheduled to place straight afterwards and a free midweek opens up. Two of the three postponed matches from Gameweeks 1/11 could be candidates for this week, as could any rearranged Gameweek 29 clashes.
  • Gameweeks 32 and 37: There are free midweeks immediately after these two Gameweeks, which happen to clash with the FA Cup semi-finals and final. It would make sense for any fixtures affected by those FA Cup ties to be merely shunted back three or four days, but there is the capacity to absorb outstanding matches from other Gameweeks if required.

There are other possible options for a small Double Gameweek, such as Gameweek 23 – although that would require clubs being eliminated early from the FA Cup and thus having a free midweek when the fifth round is due to take place.

WHEN ARE THE CHIPS AVAILABLE?

A shrewd chip strategy will be needed to navigate through this tricky period of Blank and Double Gameweeks, and that’s before we acknowledge the possibility of COVID-19 wreaking more havoc on the football calendar.

The chips, which can’t be used in conjunction with another in the same Gameweek, are available as follows:

Bench Boost, Triple Captain and Free Hit – can be used once a season at any time.

First Wildcard – available until the start of Gameweek 16 (Monday 28 December at 13:30 GMT).

Second Wildcard – available after the start of Gameweek 16 (Monday 28 December at 13:30 GMT).

    If you have two free transfers then use the free hit chip, do you retain the two free transfers the following week?

          Cheers bud! To you too with Stones, both solid buys.

            I’ll probably grab Dias in a couple weeks too anyway 😉

              • 9 Years

              Nice, same if all goes well I may even double up with Stones/Cancelo 🙂

                That’s one of the reason I went stones, keeps that option open

                1. UNDERWORLD7
                  • 9 Years
                  3 months, 23 days ago

                  Yep, makes sense, I’ve had to take a slightly more aggressive approach as no decent bench cover until after GW potentially.

                  1. The Suspended One

                    That comment finally convinced me on Stones, I realized I have good options if he doesn’t play and Dias could wait

      2 Up! (essentially 3 as I'm looking at Balbuena for the DGW)

      amazing that people are going for the Stones trap again with the left footed Laporte nearly back from injury ... we know the best CB pairing at City 😉

  4. There Can Be Only One
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    So guys I'm planning to bring TAA in do I do it for

    A)Dias
    B)Zouma

    I'm currently leaning towards selling Dias but just wanted your opinion, both have done really well for me and have got some decent points.

    Other option is downgrade Neto/Soucek and then upgrade KWP.

    This is the rest of the team

    Martinez - Forster
    Robbo - ZOUMA - DIAS - KWP - Coufal
    Salah - Son - Fernandes - Neto - Soucek
    DCL - Bamford - Wilson

    1.9m itb

    1. All Hail K
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      Wait for the Dias price rise tonight.

      1. All Hail K
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 23 days ago

        Personally I'd hold onto both this week. They both have good chances of cleanies which means TAA will have to score or assist on top of the clean sheet to make it worth it.

    2. UNDERWORLD7
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      Just got Dias and here you are thinking of selling him? Can understand it I guess if you want TAA but no way I’d be booting him with City’s fixtures. Would have to be Zouma imo, or the second option to upgrade KWP.

    3. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      It would be Dias if you are FH 18

      1. There Can Be Only One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 23 days ago

        If I do dias to Taa it also gives me 9 DGW players. (Martinez and Son as SGW). But I'm still not 100% on getting rid of either. I may just hold fire and wait a few weeks.

        Sadly I'm 0.1m short of Neto to Grealish which would have been the move I wanted.

        1. The Suspended One
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 23 days ago

          I wouldn’t suggest it if not for dgw plans, I think it changes things

  5. pakornk

    Chilwell -> Cresswell or Zouma?

    1. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Wait for news

  6. Tsparkes10

    I avoided Salah. Took a -4 and going to risk it before I wc... could go horribly wrong lol.

    McCarthy
    KWP Robertson Coufal
    KDB Son Grealish Bruno
    Firmino DCL Bamford
    (Nyland, Konsa, Podence, Mitchell)

    1. The Suspended One

      Firmino will cover Salah pts 😉

            I physically can’t sell him at 25% ownership. I tried and I can’t do it.

                  Well I am crazy, literally. For not owning him 😆 and the route is KDB > Salah ... imagine!

  7. Tiki-Taka
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 23 days ago

    Having used 1st WC, planning on FH 18 and BB 19 - does this BB team look strong enough for just one -4 hit before GW19?

    Martinez / Johnstone
    James / Dallas / Dier / Coufal / Balbuena
    Bruno / KDB / Salah / Son / Raphina
    Bamford / Antonio(Haller) / DCL

    1. luk46
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      looks nice, would maybe want a Liverpool defender, but g2g overall

  8. FDMS All Starz
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 23 days ago

    Working towards this team for gw18 team (7 players) is it enough or would you still FH? (will play BB chip in gw19 with 2FTs: KDB & Kane --> Salah & Vardy)

    mccarthy
    DIAS - CANCELO - MARCAL
    SON - KDB - NETO - bruno
    KANE - bamford - adams

    (johnstone - rapinha - justin - dallas)

    1. luk46
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      I think 7 is the minimum you should have, looks alright... what are you doing with Marcal and Neto for gw19?

    2. JonSnow
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 23 days ago

      Have the same plan here, will try to filed 7-8 of mostly spurs & city and then keep 2ft up my sleeve and do a -4 3 transfers to set myself up for GW19. City have a favourable fixture in 20 as well so may work out well.

  9. Footieboot
      3 months, 23 days ago

      Martinez
      Chilwell Reguilon Justin Coufal Mitchell
      KDB Bruno Son Grealish Zambo
      Kane DCL Bamford

      2FT 0ITB

      Who do I sacrifice for Salah?

      1. luk46
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 23 days ago

        Grealish + Kane > Salah + Adams looks a no brainer imo, also with dgw19 in mind

      2. All Hail K
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 23 days ago

        Leicester just shut out Spurs, so if you think they can do the same to ManU then Bruno.

      3. Tsparkes10
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 23 days ago

        Any money tied up? If no then Bruno if yes then kdb or Kane. Depends on tomorrow

      4. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 23 days ago

        Similar team to mine, actually the same 7 attackers. My options are down to 3:
        A. KDB > Salah very reluctantly due to KDB (NEW)
        B. Grealish Kane > Salah Adam (-4)
        C. Grealish Son > Salah Soucek (-4)

        1. Footieboot
            3 months, 23 days ago

            Probably doing Chilwell + Reguilon + Bruno to Salah + Stones + Dier
            Will build a GW18 squad and FH19

        I actually had a really good week for once.
        3 mil OR to 2.1 mil OR
        I don’t think it’s any coincidence it’s the week Son and Kane stayed quiet.

        I have chilwell, rjames and lamptey all flagged.
        Chillwell to Robertson or TAA and hold longterm?
        Never saw the game on the weekend, did TAA pass the eye test or is Robertson the better option, chasing in ML

          Robbo better but Trent is different

        2. leeboy104
            3 months, 23 days ago

            I've not seen anything from Trent this season to convince me to choose him over Robbo. Even the assist on the weekend was more about Hendo's great finish rather than Trent doing anything. Trent has lower ownership so can be treated as a differential, but Robbo for me.

          Must admit, I haven't been giving the blanks/doubles the attention they deserve, terrible time of year for them to lob.

          With 1st WC in tact do we think the best option may be to WC16 with focus on GW19 double players and then FH for 18? Have seen plenty planning to utilise BB and/or TC over this time too. I really don't have the time to ensure optimisation and so probably best for me to keep those up my sleeve for future doubles?

          I know it's all been discussed to death but indulge me if you will 🙂

            If I had a wc that has to be used by 16 I would have 15 to allow me to get through both 18 and 19 without a FH in 18. There would have to be some compromises but I think it can work , especially if not Playing BB in 19.

                It’s always mind bending but fun and it’s the planning and seeing it come off is what keeps us playing this silly game if you ask me 🙂

            I don’t know. It can work but form seems to be trumping fixtures this year. Firmino is a huge diff if you are willing to risk it.

          Reposting - Hello guys, Im planning my future transfers in preparation for BGW 18. I have FH, TC, and will have the 2nd WC available by then. I would like to save my second WC and only play my FH chip in DGW 19.

          Current team
          Martinez* Steer
          Chilwell Reece Lamptey* Taylor Mitchel*
          GroB* Salah Bruno Son* Grealish*
          Kane* Bamford Wilson*

          * = Players that have a match on BGW18 = Total of 8

          This week planned transfers are:
          Chilwell and Reece to Walker and Dier give me 2 additional players with good fixtures that also play on BGW18. Total = 10 players for BGW18

          I will then use an additional transfers to get other assets, may do Salah/Bruno to KDB and then take a hit to bring him back.

          With this plan, I dont have to use my second WC, and will only FH on DGW 19. What are your thoughts? Good plan?

            • 5 Years
            3 months, 23 days ago

            I keep saying this -the next blank GW will be around GW 28 and will most likely be horrible to negotiate without aFH even with the second WC intact.
            If I were you I would be happy with the 8 I have for GW18.
            Hold the FH and take a hit to bring 2 more dgwers in for 19
            The Spurs and City assists have a great single fixture in 19. Just my opinion

              3 months, 23 days ago

              Thanks for your input. It will be hard to try and get players in the double game week and at the same time get players that perform in 18, without a chip I mean.

              1. Albrightondknight
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                3 months, 23 days ago

                Yeah it wouldn’t be perfect and would require compromise but I just think the FH is such a valuable chip.
                You got much profit on Salah or Bruno? If going to KDB for a week just make sure you have the cash to get them back in.

            2. Yankee Toffee

              • 6 Years
              3 months, 23 days ago

              Why will it be horrible to negotiate? Should be as difficult to prepare for as any other BGW/DGW, no?

            3. Sanchit
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 23 days ago

              I disagree. Whatever the situation would be, it won't be similar to 18 and 19 where a blank is directly followed by a DGW.
              This particular situation is making things pretty bad. If we had 4-5 gameweeks in between the blank and DGW, then it didn't make sense to use the FH as we could build for both using FT's

              1. Albrightondknight
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                3 months, 23 days ago

                Fair point - possible double 26 to blank 29 you might be able to plan for - it’s tight though or again you are compromising how many dgwers you get out, but that needs to be the case for one blank either way and FH for the other.

          if i do bruno and chilwell to salah and stones.

          i will have stones mahrez kdb(too much?)

          perhaps i should look at the lineup later vs arsenal and decide again?

          i can bench mahrez vs newcastle..

            You aren't benching Mahrez vs Newcastle.
            Lineups (extra info) worth 0.1m at least.

            1. Gun gun
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 23 days ago

              why not... tbh i really feel mahrez gonna start vs arsenal ..

              1. TorresMagic™

                May as well sell Mahrez if you are benching him.

          • 5 Years

          What is the minimum you would want out for 18? I am considering only 7.

          1. TorresMagic™
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 11 Years
            3 months, 23 days ago

            7 is fine if 7 good options.
            If they are mainly 2 pointers, get more.

            1. Albrightondknight
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 23 days ago

              One would be Brewster 🙁
              KDB Dias Dier and Son and will try to add 2 more to these

                • 11 Years
                3 months, 23 days ago

                What scorelines are you expecting?

                No Villa goal, maybe another City defender, DCL/Wilson?, Kane?

                1. Albrightondknight
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  3 months, 23 days ago

                  Yeah good picks.
                  I would be thinking Wilson, another City and/or Spurs attacker.
                  I am very cash limited and even hokey kokey is difficult as I may not be able to afford to buy back any I sell due to value gained. I might be mad saying this but I like what I see of Tierney lately.

                  1. Albrightondknight
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 5 Years
                    3 months, 23 days ago

                    I meant another city or Spurs defender.

          2. Yankee Toffee
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 23 days ago

            I'm working on 8-9
            Martinez,
            Stones, Reguilon, Webster, (Mitchell)
            KDB, Son, Grealish,
            DCL, (Brewster)

            Realistically, Mitchell and Brewster won't play

            1. Albrightondknight
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 23 days ago

              So you will then FH in 19?

              1. Yankee Toffee
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 6 Years
                3 months, 23 days ago

                Don't want to but might need to depending.

                City and Spurs have a great fixture so I want to hold the FH and maybe do TC Salah in 19. I think FH will be more useful/valuable later down the line.

                how about you?

                1. Albrightondknight
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  3 months, 23 days ago

                  I think I have given up on BB 19.
                  I have very few 18 players so if I FH it will be in 18 but like you I want to hold the FH it possible. And yes all options though hard are made easier by having City and Spurs options

          Guess I just burn a transfer this week? Got 2FT 0.0 ITB. Could find a better 4.5 than Ayling potentially?. Feel like I should be do prep for the incoming fixtures and already used my WC.

          Team:
          Martinez
          Chillwell / KWP / Dias
          Salah (c) / Fernandes / Son / Grealish / KDB
          Adams / Bamford

          Bench: Button, Ayling, Michell, Davis

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 23 days ago

            Chilwell to Zouma and Mitchell to Taylor/ Coufal or something similar if a bit short on cash. This presumes you will BB in 19.
            Next week I think Grealish out.
            Current team looks very good btw.

              Thanks mate- was having a terrible season until the last few weeks- shot up to 500k last week. I like those moves but I couldn’t afford unless I go for James over Zouma.. is chill we’ll defiantly out?

                Don’t know but watching it live he seems to go over on that ankle pretty nasty. Might only be a sprain but you would have to think he is out this week at least. He sat down immediately and didn’t even try to run it off.

                Such a bad season for me too but 3 mil to close to 2 mil OR rise this week is a bit of an early Christmas present. 🙂 🙂 🙂

                  Glad to hear mate. Been a strange season I was 1.5 mil a few weeks ago- just goes to show what you can do with a couple of hauls. Do you think James is an ok replacement then? Could do Chillwell + Michell to James and Coufal then

          What is a better combo for DGW19?

          A) Fabianski, Adams
          B) McCarthy, Antonio/Haller

          Have 6.9 for a 1 week punt on a FWD, already own Bamford.

          A) Watkins
          B) Che
          C) Other (if so who?)

          Think Watkins is the better option not regarding fixture but do rate Palace defence higher than Fulhams. Thoughts?
