How to plan for Blank and Double Gameweeks with Gameweek 15 transfers

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, a time of hope and joy for many. That’s right, the Double Gameweeks are upon us! 

With the fixtures coming thick and fast, fantasy managers are starting to prepare their sides for the blanks and Double Gameweeks approaching in Gameweek 18 and Gameweek 19. I still have my first Wildcard to use so my strategy is to Wildcard in Gameweek 16, Free Hit in Blank Gameweek 18 and bench boost in Double Gameweek 19. Whatever your chip strategy may be over this period, if you intend on attacking the Double Gameweek  then the budget options will be important to help balance our squads. 

It’s important not to disregard the games in and around the doubles, so the best low cost options can give us that flexibility to bench them in not so favourable fixtures whilst maximising our squads with as many Double Gameweek players as possible.

I’m not particularly interested in any Fulham assets, so the teams most likely to provide me with cheaper options are Burnley, Leeds, West Ham and Southampton. Let’s take a look at their fixtures over the coming weeks. For the purpose of this research I have ignored Gameweek 18 as I, and I expect many others are planning on free hitting that week. Apologies to those with different strategies.

Gameweek 15 – Gameweek 17

  • Burnley (lee, SHU, FUL)
  • Leeds (BUR, wba, tot)
  • West Ham (BHA, sou, eve)
  • Southampton (ful, WHU, LIV) 

Double Gameweek  Fixtures

  • West Ham (BUR, WBA)
  • Leeds (BHA, SOU)
  • Southampton (lei, lee)
  • Burnley (whu, liv)

LEEDS UNITED

As you can see, Leeds rank high in the Season Ticker tool in both the fixtures preceding blank Gameweek 18 and Double Gameweek 19 itself. This, for me, makes them the perfect team to target for budget enablers in preparation for the Double Gameweek. Interestingly, the fixtures after the double aren’t bad either (new, lei, EVE, CRY) making them a great investment in the long term thinking also.

The attacking intent from this Leeds side is clear to see. Even in the 6-2 defeat to Manchester United they managed 17 attempts (14 in the box and 3 big chances). Patrick Bamford (£6.4m) is still undoubtably the standout option of their assets. 

Nailed in Marco Bielsa’s side and at the top end of all key metrics across forwards this season, he is arguably must-have for me currently, given his price and fixture run.

Those looking for a differential may look to Raphinha (£5.4m). He has been displaying some eye-catching stats of late. Looking at the last four Gameweeks, he has made 14 attempts (11 in the box) and created 12 chances for his teammates. 

End-product is letting him down right now, but he may consider himself unlucky to only return twice in the last four outings (two assists). Bamford would be the man to hang your hat on and transfer in early if you don’t own already, but it’s worth keeping an eye on the Brazilian over the coming games as the Double Gameweek 19 approaches.

Defensively, Leeds don’t fill me with much hope for clean sheets with their ‘We’ll score more than you’ mentality. I will probably stay clear of their defensive assets but for anyone wanting to invest, Stuart Dallas (£4.7m) is the one with an eye for goal who might pop up with an attacking return. 

He has made 18 attempts on goal this season and no defender has had more big chances than the Northern Irishman (three).

BURNLEY

In a stark contrast to Leeds, it’s only really defensive assets that appeal from the Clarets. Despite a 2-1 win over Wolves in Gameweek 14, Burnley have still only registered eight goals all season and at 11.65, only West Bromwich Albion have a worst expected goals (xG) score than them. 

However, as we have come to expect from Sean Dyche’s men, they look assured defensively and have already produced five clean sheets. 

Looking at the fixtures, Burnley have a fantastic run up to Double Gameweek 19 which should provide a great platform to further their clean sheet tally, but the Double Gameweek isn’t particularly appealing for them which is a shame. 

Away matches at West Ham and Liverpool in Gameweek 19 is unlikely to result in clean sheets in my opinion. Therefore, the best route into their defence could be Nick Pope (£5.4m), who has the capability to rack up save points in any fixture. The shot-stopper has already acquired 66 points and is well on his way to replicating last seasons heroics. 

Those looking to bench boost may find his £5.4m price tag a little to high and may prefer to look for two sub £5.0m Double Gameweek goalkeepers. But those not planning on using the chip should seriously consider Pope in my opinion as the best long-term option to pair with non-playing bench fodder.

Elsewhere Charlie Taylor (£4.5m) is still good value at £4.5m.

WEST HAM UNITED

Arguably the pick up the bunch for the Double Gameweek fixtures (BUR, WHA), West Ham will provide us with good value ahead of this run of games. 

The standout budget options for me are Vladimir Coufal (£4.6m) and Tomas Soucek (£5.1m).

I have spoken about a lot about Soucek in previous articles and he continues to pass the eye test for me. I have owned the midfielder all season and at £5.1m, I am happy to leave him on my bench when I do not need him, and fancy him to provide returns when called upon. 

Coufal is a player I am currently planning on bringing in when I Wildcard in Gameweek 16. Over the last four Gameweeks he has put in 26 crosses and created 10 chances for his teammates. 

Only Liverpool’s Andrew Robertson (£7.3m) can better those numbers. Still only £4.6m, the favourable Double Gameweek fixtures bodes well for returns at both end of the pitch. 

SOUTHAMPTON

While the fixtures for the Saints aren’t fantastic, I feel their performances on the pitch can make us start to realistically consider their assets in any match. Jannik Vestergaard (£5.0m) is perhaps the best defensive asset with his presence in the box resulting in three goals already this season, although does have a knee problem to overcome right now. 

Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.7m) is also a good option for anyone who has a little value tied up in him or does not want to stretch to the 5.0 price tag. 

From an attacking perspective, Che Adams (£6.0m) is the possibly the best option currently for anyone looking for a forward in this price bracket. His all-round play has resulted in four goals and five assists this season. As a Saints fan who watches most games, it is clear that his confidence continues to grow.

Thanks for reading. Christmas will certainly be different this year but hopefully we can at least enjoy the football. Good Luck all.

        Have KDB but not Salah, can't decide if i should fo kdb C to salah C or stick with Kevin.

    5. GOONER
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      1) Robbo + Raphinha

      2) Balbuena + Grealish

      1. BeWater
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Robbo and Raphinha.

      2. Stupendous
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Chilwell to Zouma for a hit is daft right?

        1. BeWater
            2 months, 6 days ago

            Yes. Because Zouma has to keep a clean sheet just to break even.

            1. Stupendous
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 6 days ago

              Aye

        2. Pitch Perfect
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Is it worth taking a -4 to shift out Chilwell before I lose 0.1m in selling price? Would have 7.3 to spend.

          But can field a 3 man defence already without the hit...

          1. Stupendous
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            Same situation

          2. HVT
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            If it were Robbo, I’d be very tempted

            1. Pitch Perfect
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 6 days ago

              Back 3 without the hit would be Robbo + Justin + Bednarek.

          James > ?

          Robbo - Dias - Coufal - Dunne - ___

          Thinking about Zouma. Thoughts? Will need to play him most weeks

          1. Vazza
              2 months, 6 days ago

              Zouma is gold. Buy him before he is 6.5m and you have less GWs to play him

              1. Champione
                • 5 Years
                2 months, 6 days ago

                Yes, my thinking as well. Easy set and forget

            • Lucky Z
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 6 days ago

              You should need to play 5.8 defender

          2. Vazza
              2 months, 6 days ago

              What are your favourite five fpl assets this season?

                I want Zouma and DCL for long term so I'm gonna sell Robbo anyway after the DGW so I have 2 options. One of them must be done to allow me form a 15-man BB team.(I don't care about 18 cause I free hit)

                A) Lose DCL for Che Adams

                B)Lose Robbo for Zouma

                        I need to stop recommending him. I don't want his price to rise before boxing day.

                            Don’t worry, he will be the next Jota/Ziyech i.e he waits for the entire world to buy him and then decides to stop delivering.

                                    I’m probably the last person you should ask this question. Let me tell you why. I still have my first WC and have no intention to use it as I’m adamant that my current team can outperform any other players in FPL regardless of whether they have a DGW or not.

                                    There is a saying.. all that glitters is not gold.. and that is where I place the likes of Raphinha etc.

                                  Fair enough, it’s a good team. I’ve got my first WC and just trying to decide whether to use in now or do -4 to get Salah in for Bruno

                              Pretty set on FH18, now it’s TC or BB19. Pick A or B please.

                              A) BB with 1 hit GW19
                              Martinez (Johnstone*)
                              Robbo*,Dallas*,Coufal*, (KWP*, Zouma*)
                              Son, Salah*, Grealish, Bruno* (Soucek*)
                              Adams*, DCL, Bamford*

                              11DGW + Son, Grealish, DCL, Martinez,

                              B) TC Salah GW19

                                B probably... I’d get rid of Grealish and DCL tbh

                              2. Fpl stress

                                A, both similar teams but A has a nice mix and B is very very heavily reliant on Liverpool - double defense and Salah TC.

                                High chance both games are low scoring and Liverpool likely to concede one over the two games

                                It's placing all your eggs in Liverpool IMO which could pay off big time or do you prefer to spread the risk with A.

                                I'd prefer a spread of risk personally.

                                          A) Play Konsa (he may not start)
                                          B) Lamptey to Dias (-4) and bench Konsa

                                              - Are no Spurs just brave, stupid or insane?
                                              - Can I get by with no hits, even tho my bench is really bad (expect zero points from Kilman and Lewis over the next 5 gws)
                                              - Should I go for -8 this Week, to Get in a city defender, And if So, should I downgrade Jesus to Adams or Grealish to Raphina?

                                                Hey TS, I saw a post of yours on an article about 12-14 hrs back and I'm actually in a similar position - WC1 still intact, but a SV of 100.4m and TV of 101.8m - yikes.

                                                Haven't had the time to draft out WC teams for GW16 on Mon 28th but looking into it over next few days. Have read various articles on chip use and I'm thinking I'll find it very hard to get a good BB19 team with such low TV.

                                                Saying that, yours above looks decent for what is probably a simialr / slightly better TV what mine.

                                                Wouldn't risk it with Antonio at this stage with the uncertainty. Could always bring him in for a hit if good news arrives. Definitely staying away from Man City / KDB even though Pep said (a few days back, iirc) KDB unlikely to be rested right now?

                                                  Cheers mate, appreciate the lengthy reply 🙂

                                                  I’ve had a few drafts now and think this above is my preferred... no city is risky but I just can’t afford it like you said and will probably lose Vardy to fund kdb after 19.

                                                  My SV is 100.6m so very awful and similar to yours. I’ll keep an eye out for your posts and see if we do something similar...

                                                  did think about not using a BB but it seems so optimal and tbh the low budget players e.g raphinha and soucek could well get double over their 2 nice fixtures.

                                                  1. The Count of Monte Cristo
                                                    • 8 Years

                                                    That's true, Vardy + ___ --> KDB + ____ will probably restore the balance of your team closer to what it is now (unless you own Kane currently) but that should work things out.

                                                    I've always left BB until late DGW's so hence why I'm still sceptic but like you say, cheap guys like Raphinha / Soucek / Bamford can easily score well over the DGW.

                                                    Will probably draft a few teams tomorrow afternoon / evening when I'm too full to do anything else

                                                    Will keep an eye out for your posts as well, pal. Have a very Merry Christmas!

                                                      Yhhh exactly, won’t be too hard to downgrade the bench afterwards either... don’t mind keeping soucek as a 5th mid most likely.

                                                      Same I always leave chips til late hence the last week wc but I reckon this bb will do wonders hopefully and don’t wanna force it later on.

                                                      Sound, I’ll check in the evening when I’m in a similar state and probably a few typing errors from the drinking..

                                                      UTB and have a good Christmas mate 🙂

                                              Could really use some advice this week if anyone has time. Was gonna do KDB > Salah (my only way for free, 1M ITB) as I'm worried about captaining KDB while everyone C's Mo.

                                              But I own James and Mitchell and Dias playing in the cup probably means he's not going to play this weekend so I'm likely a man down. Feel baffled on what the priority is!

                                              Dias, James, KWP, Justin, Mitchell
                                              KDB, Fernandes, Son, Grealish, Bowen
                                              Kane, Bamford, Brewster

                                                Dias will play so don't worry there.

                                                KDB certainly worth holding, just depends how bad you want Salah.

                                                  Appreciate the response! In an ideal world I would prefer to wait a week but I am scared he's going to bury me if KDB blanks

                                                Salah going up again & ownership getting higher.
                                                James > Coufal, leaves cash to upgrade Mitchell?

                                                  Thanks for the response! Unfortunately not due to Mitchell dropping to 3.9, would only have 4.1m. Cash a bit tied up with Mo needing to come in

                                                I have similar problem, thinking of doing Bruno & Kane -> Salah & Firmino (-4). But I’ve also got the 1st WC to use next week...

                                                Have the same problem with KDB and no Salah. No other issues in my team so comes down to who's the best captain this week. If you have other issues i'd sort them out first.

                                                GW 16= KDB and Lamptey > Son and Robertson -4.

                                                    I would be very tempted to make these moves.

                                                    As an aside, how did you end up with Greenwood in your team??

                                                      As a punt tbh.. one of my favourite players and we had Leeds n Sheffield

                                                          Fair enough. I guess one has to live a little

                                                    Hi Lads!

                                                    Who are the best Chilwell + Reece replacements? I have both...

                                                    Dias & Coufal?
                                                    Dias & Reguillon?

                                                    Cheers!!

                                                      Probably A if budget is a constraint

                                                    Custom game with no WC and chips.

                                                    For GW16&17 would you rather have :

                                                    B. Kane - 4

                                                    Both most probably not an option as it unbalances my team for BGW and DGW

                                                    Pressers tomorrow? Any comments from Pep on Aguero chances of starting?

                                                      Surely Salah Coufal and Adams rise tonight then..

                                                          Yes. And Zouma yet again.

                                                        Anyone know if Chilwell is due another price drop tonight?

                                                            Will he get to 100 by 2am though?
