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 6 FTs from now to GW19, best way to use chips is:

    A. FH18 BB19 WC25 TC26 and manage 29 with FTs

    B. TC19 WC25 BB26 FH29

    BGW: (6 players) Martinez KDB Grealish Bissouma DCL Welbeck

    DGW: (6 players) Robbo Zouma Dallas Salah Bruno Bamford

    Injure / dont play: (3 palyers) Forster Chilwell Mitchell

      Who knows what will pay off better but my thinking is to save as many chips for later as possible as covid can cause issues. Hence I would pick B.

      Your team is awesome but if you are planning for B then you will have to make some transfers to bring in the right players. Maybe son kane and west ham players for example

    Seems like the majority are free hitting in GW18, which I was initially adverse to but can see why so popular putting the teams together.

    Is the consensus for those without a WC to bench boost or triple captain Salah in GW19?

    Not that keen on probably needing to wildcard soon after a BB19 so leaning towards TC at the moment

    1. Begbie.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      I'm FH in 18, TC Salah in 19 and keeping BB for whatever big-ish DGW we get later in the season.

      1. Ibralicious
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 29 days ago

        Name checks out

    2. n14mul
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      I don't see the appeal to fh18 when we know there will be more dgw to come

      1. Gandalf
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        8 months, 29 days ago

        For me, I'm leaning towards taking out KDB after Newcastle, so with having the likes of Sterling, Wilson, KDB etc for that week and a good looking 11 compared to a poor 6 has swayed me. Can WC before a later bench boost

      2. Original - Wolves Ay We
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 29 days ago

        You have to realise there are many players like myself who only have 2 or 3 players for GW18 and we have to do a FH to get any substantial points that week.

        1. n14mul
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 29 days ago

          Don't "have to" i just look at the games and nothing screams out points baring city vs Brighton hence I think its a waste

          1. FPLGeezer
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            8 months, 29 days ago

            When I look at it theres plenty of points on FH ie 60+ as opposed to those with 5-8 players maybe scraping half without the right captain.

    3. Tsparkes10
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      Hmm is tempting but feel like Bb19 will be worth

    4. Clintymints
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      Prob FH

      going to be a pretty lame week anyways

  6. Tsparkes10

    Merry Christmas all 🙂
    Thoughts on this WC for next week?? Will only have 1FT to use before BB in 19...

    McCarthy Meslier
    Coufal Balbeuna Robo Taylor Justin
    Son Bruno Salah Raphinia Soucek
    Vardy Adams Bamford

    Really tempted for Antonio but doubt he’ll be fit

    1. n14mul
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      Very similar to mine but I have kdb for Bruno.

      I plan to do son to Bruno in 19, United have alot of games back to back and worry what they will be like and possible minutes for bruno

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 29 days ago

        Fair enough mate, I have lots of value in Bruno so keeping and like his dgw fixtures

        1. n14mul
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 29 days ago

          Completely get that, I still haven't had Bruno yet!!

            • 3 Years

    2. Atwood
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      Very nice. I wouldn't take the Antonio risk either.

    2FT’s and 0.0 in the bank.

    Thinking of doing...
    Chilwell, Bruno, Wilson > Balbuena, Salah, Bamford (-4)
    ...would look to switch KDB back to Bruno in the near future. Just love his home Newcastle fixture.

    Martinez
    Chilwell - Robertson - Dallas
    KDB - Bruno - Grealish - Bowen
    DCL - Kane - Wilson

    KWP - Justin - Bissouma

    Chilwell/James --> Zouma/Taylor , yay or nay?
    Rest of defence is: Cresswell, Konsa, Kilman
    Alternatively, could do Chilwell/James --> Trent/Robbo and 3.8...

    1. Clintymints

    Steer Bissouma B.Davies Chilwell*

    0FT, 0.8 ITB

    PLan is WC16/FH18/BB19, and Coufal is on my WC draft and likely to rise tonight.

    Preparing for DGW19 so want to keep Chilwell

    Am I likely to have a playing 11 this week or do I need to get rid of Chilwell ASAP?

        Scout picks lol.. has been incredibly unlucky with VAR. great underlying assests in a team with outstanding attacking stats and xG. You must be a casual..

      Meh... very template and very average. Even then, lacks Kane and I would get rid of Kilman and James on a hit or you’ll be in trouble heading into chips weeks. Back to the drawing board with this

      1. IRBOX ⚽

        Haha absolutely delusional

        1. Ibralicious
          • 7 Years
          8 months, 29 days ago

          Delusional would be still owning James and Kilman. For someone who finished thrice in the top 20k, you sure waste a lot of transfers.

          1. IRBOX ⚽
            • 4 Years

            You clearly don’t understand the game... points and value on the pitch.. you don’t waste transfers on your bench you muppet 😆

            1. Ibralicious
              • 7 Years
              8 months, 29 days ago

              Good luck fielding 11 during the holiday fixtures then. Seems you've only watched the sport for 4 odd years, you have a lot to learn, casual. I'll come back and converse with you once you can actually break 100k this season. Hopefully, your advice to others on here isn't as terrible as your own decision making 😀

          Haha so I'm being called casual by someone who can't even break 500k this season. I can link you to some other fantasy games if you want to take a crack at them. But seeing your woeful decision-making, I don't think you'll have any luck. Seems your head just isn't in the right place, unfortunately

            Wow.. I don’t even know how to respond to that. This team is set up to be top 50k in 4 GW’s with chips deployed but thank you for the concern. You clearly have no idea based on your season history so please refrain from commenting on rank you peanut

      Ah, I see why everyone on this site seems to pick an argument with you. You seem to have lost it a while back, shame really. I hope you can regain some of those lost pebbled in your head and get your act together this season 😀

      Nice team, Robbo over TAA though surely?

    6. Fpl stress

      8 months, 29 days ago

      Like the team, a strong bench is overrated one player is good enough as you don't have anyway risky nonstarters in your XI.

      TAA Vs Robbo is a good debate, in favour of Robertson but all it takes is two assists and a clean sheet from TAA and the tables turn.

      Nice team though and merry Xmas all.

        That's old school thinking. This season with fatigue, injuries and covid, you need a strong bench.

          Yeah true, but that's can be fixed during the next few weeks or so, no hits need to be taken as to what's he's asking though

    What to do with Lamptey? 0 FT
    A. Keep (either Bissouma or Anguissa will play)
    B. C. Taylor (-4)
    C. Dallas (-4)
    D. Vestegaard (-4)

    1. Tsparkes10

      C

    2. IRBOX ⚽
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      C is definitely a poor option. Leeds with an abhorrent xGc and big chances conceded. Vestergaard is injured so that’s a big no no and Burnley defenders have to be the most uninspirational assests in the game. A the obvious choice with Anguissa

    Which plan is better? Wondering if A is better as it saves me a FH chip, any big players missing?

    A)
    -Gw16: WC
    -Gw18: 7/8 players
    mccarthy
    DIAS - DIER - CANCELO
    SON - KDB - NETO - bruno
    KANE - bamford - adams
    (johnstone - rapinha - justin - dallas)
    -Gw19: BB
    (Kdb & Kane -> Salah & Vardy)

    Or

    B)
    -Gw16: WC
    -Gw18: FH
    -Gw19: BB

    1. Taegugk Warrior

      B

      1. FDMS All Starz
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 29 days ago

        What players is plan A missing? Does gw18 warrant a FH chip? Think the BB team for plan A is not strong enough?

      1. Fudgy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 29 days ago

        FH 18 & TC 19

        If more fixtures get announced in gw18 it could change my plans

        1. Tsparkes10
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 29 days ago

          Reasoning??

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            8 months, 29 days ago

            My team will be very weak in 18 as it stands. It looks strong for 19 tho and the TC will be used on Salah who has 2 home games.

    What’s everyone’s plan for 18 and 19? Give me details

    1. popcoin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      Saving FH for GW29. Will probably field Martinez, Dias, Saiss, KdB, Zaha, Son, Kane, DCL and Brewster in GW18.
      Toss up between bench boost and triple captain Salah for GW28.

      1. popcoin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 29 days ago

        Probably triple captain in 19 if no free hit in 18 as less able to prepare for bench boost

    2. Bennyboy1907
      8 months, 29 days ago

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

      11DGW + Son, Grealish, DCL, Martinez

    3. Bennyboy1907
      8 months, 29 days ago

      FH18

    4. G-Whizz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      FH18, BB19...

  21. popcoin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 29 days ago

    “The teams set to feature in GW29 are still yet to be confirmed, but it is certain that the number of teams will be less than the number of teams featuring in GW18.”

    This true?

    1. G-Whizz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 4 Years

      Nah, course not!

      We spout lies all over the place in our articles, not sure how we been getting away with it for so long tbh...

      Depends on who makes the QFs.

  22. Taegugk Warrior

    How much hit worth to take, to accomodate BB at GW19..?

    1. Bennyboy1907

      No more than 1 imo

  26. 1314
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 29 days ago

    fair to say Kane & Son are better assets than City attackers ? I might actually remove KDB by doing KDB-Brewster > Neto-Kane once Spurs fixtures turn..

    1. Bruce Lee
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      I wouldn't get rid of City players... only a matter of time they start scoring big in games. Been hammered teams in normal city fashion, but no goals to show for it

      1. 1314
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 29 days ago

        I don't want too..unfortunately to get Kane I have to remove one of KDB, Salah, Bruno & Son..basically down to whether to own Kane or not to own Kane on the expense of KDB..

    2. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      Not really IMO

      Over the last 6 games, Man City 1st for big chances created, 2nd for chances created, 2nd for shots inside box, 2nd for penalty area touches and 4th for non-penalty xG

      Same time period, for same metrics, Spurs are 14th, 20th, 20th, 19th and 19th

      1. Bruce Lee
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 29 days ago

        ZLook at the spurs fixtures in that time frame though

        1. Bruce Lee
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 29 days ago

          city, chels, arsenal, cry, liv, leic

      2. 1314
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 29 days ago

        cheers, good point..one point noteworthy are their respective fixtures for gw 16 & 17 - Spurs facing Fulham(H) & Leeds(H), while City facing Everton(A) & Chelsea(A)..and having Neto/Podence for gw 18 later is another advantage..

    3. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      For 2 weeks, they do look better, atleast on paper. Can reassess after that.

      Performance like Leicester game wouldn't help.

  27. Bruce Lee
    • 3 Years

    zouma header at a corner vs arsenal

    just sounds right

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      Same for Wood Vs Leeds

      Won't be surprised if it happens, as I had to sacrifice him to get Kane in place of Werner. Congratulations in advance to Zouma and Werner owners 😀

    1. zøphar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I'd concur with that, the only spot that really is debatable is Mahrez really

    2. Viprin
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      Confident Mahrez will start?

    Is it ok to not use chips and full team with -4/-8 hit in 18 and WC in gwk19 ??

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      "Is it ok to not use chips and full team with -4/-8 hit in 18" - This is fine.

      "WC in gwk19 ??" - Why play WC? Team must be getting stronger with those hits.

      1. MagicMessi
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 29 days ago

        To field 15 to BB will require hits
        Free hit is cool but I'll still want Liverpool Spurs and ManU so not seeing a point in freehitting

      2. MagicMessi
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 29 days ago

        I'd want to field 11 players in double and the blank team will almost all have singles

        1. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          8 months, 29 days ago

          Oh ok, makes sense. I don't really like those DGW fixtures, 6-7 DGW players will be fine.
