Fixtures

When will the next FPL Double Gameweeks take place this season?

Fantasy Premier League managers should expect an abnormally high number of Double Gameweeks this season.

And keeping an eye on when these might crop up is important for those looking to make the most of their chips – especially the Triple Captain.

As a result of the unprecedented coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the 2020/21 campaign is the most compressed in modern memory.

Due to a later-than-usual start, there is more pressure on the clashes between league and cup commitments for top-flight teams. This has given schedulers less time to fit in the usual postponements and, of course, we have seen COVID-19 itself put paid to several additional fixtures too.

But when will these inevitable Double Gameweeks surface? And, more importantly, is there anything Fantasy managers can do to pre-empt them and take the rearrangements in their stride?

In this article, we will look at the three specific Premier League clubs involved in the EFL Cup semi-finals, considering the possible scheduling headaches in store for each of them.

Before dive in, it is worth pointing out that these scenarios are not predictions. In each case, they illustrate the fixture pile-up that would result from continued success for each team on all cup fronts in Europe, the FA Cup and EFL Cup.

This should help clarify where Double Gameweeks could feature, as things stand. Further opportunities may open up, depending on the configuration and timing of future Cup defeats though.

The most recent rearrangements involved Burnley v Manchester United and Manchester City v Aston Villa, which have gone into Blank Gameweek 18 and Double Gameweek 19 respectively.

There are currently a further four matches awaiting date reassignments, each of them postponed because of COVID-19 outbreaks.

  • Aston Villa v Newcastle (Gameweek 11)
  • Everton v Manchester City (Gameweek 16)
  • Tottenham Hotspur v Fulham (Gameweek 16)
  • Burnley v Fulham (Gameweek 17)

Barring coordinated early FA Cup exits or some scheduling wizardry, it is unlikely that any of these fixtures will be reassigned before Gameweek 23.

Manchester City

Matches to be rescheduled:

  • Gameweek 16: Everton (away)

Future possible Cup-related postponements:

  • Gameweek 29 (FA Cup quarter-finals): Wolves (home)
  • Gameweek 32 (FA Cup semi-finals): Aston Villa (away)
  • Gameweek 33 (EFL Cup final): Southampton (home)
  • Gameweek 37 (FA Cup final): Brighton (away)

On the assumption Manchester City continue to progress on all fronts this season, there are currently five available midweek slots to accommodate any rescheduled matches. These are Gameweeks 24, 26, 27, 32 and 37.

Gameweeks 32 and 37 look unlikely to become a Double for Pep Guardiola’s men as both the Aston Villa and Brighton matches can drop into the immediately subsequent midweek slots if rearrangements need to happen.

We will know whether or not Manchester City are competing in Gameweek 33’s EFL Cup final a few days after Gameweek 17.

The midweek following the final is set aside for the first leg of the Champions League semi-final. 

Given the last-sixteen ties will only be completed during midweek of Gameweek 28, any postponement for Southampton’s league trip to the Etihad Stadium fixture would likely be arranged early to form either a Double Gameweek 24, 26 or 27.

Gameweek 29 is scheduled to coincide with the FA Cup quarter-finals and immediately proceeds the March international break. 

As the quarter-final ties will be determined following the fifth-round matches during the midweek of Gameweek 23, any rescheduling of Manchester City’s home game against Wolves in Gameweek 29 could drop into Gameweek 26 or 27.

The postponed trip to Everton from Gameweek 16 should also feature in either Gameweek 24, 26 or 27.

As a result, continued progress on all Cup fronts could result in four Double Gameweeks for Manchester City between Gameweeks 19 and 27.

This possible scenario illustrates how little room for manoeuvre there is for schedulers. A further COVID-19 postponement for Guardiola’s men could foreseeably force a compressed midweek Double Gameweek toward the end of the campaign, or even delay the end of the season for some clubs.

Manchester United

Fernandes scores again as new Pogba role pushes Rashford to the right

Manchester United matches to be rescheduled:

  • None (at time of writing)

Future possible Cup-related postponements:

  • Gameweek 29 (FA Cup quarter-finals): Crystal Palace (away)
  • Gameweek 32 (FA Cup semi-finals): Burnley (home)
  • Gameweek 33 (EFL Cup final): Leeds (away)
  • Gameweek 37 (FA Cup final): Fulham (home)

On the assumption Manchester United continue to progress on all cup fronts, there are just three available midweek slots to accommodate any rescheduled matches. 

This reduced number compared to their City rivals is due to the extra knockout round the Europa League features over the Champions League. 

The available midweek slots in question are in Gameweeks 26, 32 and 37.

Therefore, progression on all fronts for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s in-form squad will likely lead to a compressed Double Gameweek toward the end of the season, perhaps in Gameweek 37.

Tottenham Hotspur

Kane and Son proving difficult to sell ahead of Double Gameweek 19

Spurs matches to be rescheduled:

  • Gameweek 16: Fulham (home)

Future possible Cup-related postponements:

  • Gameweek 29 (FA Cup quarter-finals): Southampton (home)
  • Gameweek 32 (FA Cup semi-finals): Everton (away)
  • Gameweek 33 (EFL Cup final): Fulham (away)
  • Gameweek 37 (FA Cup final): Aston Villa (home)

Like Manchester United, Spurs’ involvement in the Europa League could hamper their domestic scheduling. 

And with their Gameweek 16 match also requiring rearranging, the result could rise to five rescheduled fixtures, with only three remaining midweek slots to accommodate them: Gameweeks 26, 32 and 37. 

This is another scenario that could lead to a compressed midweek Double Gameweek toward the end of the season.

I hope these example scenarios have whetted your appetite for future Double Gameweeks. 

It must be said that Premier League schedulers have their work cut out for them right now and will have even more on their hands in the coming weeks and months. 

The question some Fantasy managers should be asking themselves in light of this information is: will you still be playing your Triple Captain chip in Double Gameweek 19? 

It is clear that 2020/21 has the potential to feature more Double Gameweeks than any other previous season. The chances of the perfect moment to deploy the Triple Captain arising at some point between now and the end of the campaign are certainly high indeed.

    Lampard next manager to get sacked. Good investment?

    1. waldo666
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      What are the odds?

  2. Pukkipartyy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Mane out done. Feels so good!

    1. Tim Canterbury
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Stupidity. Should have had about 10 goals in the second half alone

      1. Qaiss
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        He’s not worth his price

    2. Luton_Fan
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      I did that this gw. Didnt feel good as he looks on form despite little returns lately.

  3. Tsparkes10
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Annoying. Was always on Salah to KDB for the dgw. Also allows a Johnstone upgrade... just need to pray McCarthy and Adams are fit. Others scared to BB in 19 incase of fixture postponements?

    1. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Yes too much uncertainty with BB

      Also dont like city having 3 games in a week

    2. waldo666
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      I was saving BB as didn't have enough TV to set up a decent BB side, all the COVID business only solidifying that decision.

  4. Kane Lane

    What terrible GW 49pts all out. I'm 100pts away from first in the league, is it possible to catch or season done. I been the champion two seasons running

    1. Pukkipartyy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Its possible.

    2. Luton_Fan
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Course it is. 49 points is nothing

      1. Luton_Fan
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Sorry read wrong. 100 points still very doable.

    3. tafrère
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      We're not even at halfway point yet...

    4. Cilly Bonnolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Say this every year but I've seen a fifty-odd point lead lost on the last day in my minileague. Way too early to be panicking about that.

    5. Third Eye Vision
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      I made up a deficit of 100 points in the last 2 gameweeks a number of years ago (5 or 6?)

      Last week was a high scoring gameweek. I was focused on trying to win my manager of the month. Wasn’t even considering winning the ml.

      1. Third Eye Vision
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Got something like 13 bonus points and won by 7.

    6. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Game of luck, luck can change.

    7. DK_13
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      If he took half a season to go ahead by 100, why will it be impossible for you to do the same and catch up?

  5. Origi-nal
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Madness to go Sterling over KDB on FH?

    1. Ruinenlust
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      No

    2. AK_FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Not madness. Though I would probably choose KDB myself.

    3. lespaul
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      No , sterling could easily explode

  6. Tim Canterbury
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Salah TC can’t happen now

    1. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Could be a decent differential now but with the amount of DGW opportunities to come i think its safer to avoid for now

      Still think jes the best cap pick for that gw tho

  7. FPL_DON
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Dias or Cancelo?

    Very tricky!

    1. dshv
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Dias

    2. Pukkipartyy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Both, but if one Dias.

    3. Luton_Fan
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Went dias for security. slightly regret it.

      1. FPL_DON
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        cheers chaps, yeah cancelo looks so lively but dias is so nailed

    4. AK_FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      I went Cancelo, although Dias more nailed long term.

      1. FPL_DON
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        that's my thinking, i have the double in mind so dias might be the best bet knowing he'll most likely start both

        1. AK_FC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          If the 0.1 difference doesn't matter, go Dias. Things are looking tight for me to get in a second double GW goalie for 19, so I decided to save the 0.1

  8. Flair
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    4 months, 7 days ago

    If you're feeling down about this week, don't be - we're all getting green arrows in GW18!

    1. Random Name
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Someone must get a red arrow

  9. bennyp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    What to do here? Have all chips:

    Meslier - Caprille
    Robbo - Dias - Cancelo - Taylor* - Mitchell
    Salah - KDB - Son - Podence - Soucek
    Adams* - Giroud - Cavani

    2FT & 0.4itb.

  10. AK_FC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Currently on 8 players (w/ Brewster) for GW18, wanting to save FH. Is it worth downgrading either Salah or Robbo (to either Rashford or Man U defender) in order to upgrade Brewster?

    Martinez
    Cancelo, Stones
    KDB, Fernandes, Son
    DCL, Brewster

    (Bench: Steer, Salah, Robbo, Bamford, Dallas, Coufal, Soucek)

    1. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Im on 9 with Brewster for -8. Scary.

      1. AK_FC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Well you are one player up on me for the week! Though I haven't used a transfer yet. Would take me a -4 any way I cut it to upgrade Brewster this week, so not sure if it's worth it.

    2. FPL_DON
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      strong

  11. tafrère
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    If you're not FHing in GW18, why ?

    1. Random Name
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      I ask the same thing to people who haven't transferred in Lacazette yet

      It's just madness that's why

    2. Ruinenlust
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      I’m have just enough money to bring in KDB before he rises. But if I FH, then I will lose KDB and I won’t have the money to buy him again for GW 19.

    3. Whazza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Got 9 playing players, think it's worth more than two players.

    4. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      No free hit left haha, using WC to set up for this week and next BB

    5. jdp219
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      I'm in a middle ground--could field 9 players--so might just save it for the potential DGWs later in the season.

      1. jdp219
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Or other potential blanks.

    6. Sif
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Can field 9 players and cover several big hitters already.
      Putting more eggs into fewer baskets means if a fixture is called off you've lost a lot more players and essentially wasted a chip.

    7. Original - Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      None of your business!

      Only joking. Only have 4 players

    8. Qaiss
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Because I have 11 players

    9. FPL_DON
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      i feel it is more valuable later as i can field a decent side this week

    10. PP6
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Saving it for GW29 I have 10 players after FH ( including Burke)

    11. AK_FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Because I have the core (KDB, Son, Bruno, double city Def), and there aren't that many other players I'm that afraid not to have. I am fine dropping 10-15 points this week to save the FH I think - there will be blank gameweeks in the future where I will be really glad I still have it I think.

      1. FPL_Motty
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        4 months, 7 days ago

        What this guy said. Free hit will be a bigger swing in gw29, not worth it now

    12. Boberella
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Happy with the 9 players I'll have given the fixtures and would rather save FH for a future time.

    13. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Because I have 10 quality players that week and prefer to save the FH for more valuable opportunities.

    14. michaelington
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Wildcard for a good team in both 18 and 19 and then use FH later

    15. Peskey
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Have 9 players + Brewster and two FT
        Don’t see the need for FH

    16. Neo-Viper
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Who keeps the goal for me on FH?

      Darlow (SHU A)
      Martinez (TOT H)

      swinging for Darlow. what do you think?

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Darlow

      2. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Darlow

      3. Neo-Viper
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Cheers!!

    17. Tsparkes10
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Everyone who used a WC in 16... BB in 19?

      Yes or No

      1. Neo-Viper
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Yay!

      2. AK_FC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        I didn't WC, but using BB in 19. As of now have 12 double gameweekers for 19, which will become either 13 or 14 (depending on if I keep DCL along w/ Son).

      3. waldo666
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        No.

    18. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Mané Robertson to KDB Cancelo -4 and this 9 player team for week 18 sufficient without playing FH. Gives me minimum 12 doublers going into 19

      Martinez
      Cancelo Dias Mitchell
      KDB Bruno Son
      Watkins Brewster

      McCarthy Coufal Dallas
      Salah Raphinha Bamford

      1. Pukkipartyy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        Yes yesyes 100%

        1. Belli2007
          • 10 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          I would be very happy with that team of 9

      2. AK_FC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        I am in a very similar situation, see above. I am saving FH I think.

        1. dunas_dog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          One reason I like the idea is that if I FH in 18 then in 19 I would need -4 to get KDB Cancelo again! Can use my transfer in 19 to get 13/14 doublers

          1. AK_FC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            4 months, 7 days ago

            Oh definitely. I would just make the transfers in your case for sure.

    19. cbazza10
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      I have made a -8 hit this week but I am now going to free hit. Will that -8 still get taken off my total points?

      Having a mare haha

      If you feel like sh*t after your GW, read this:

      There is no way that anyone here had a more unfortunate GW than I did.
      First of all: I got 21 points on the bench with Mitchell, Cresswell and JWP.
      Obviously I played TAA, Justin and Holding instead.

      - Justin lost nearly all of his points in a few seconds.
      - Cresswell got an assist but he actually didn't assist.

      Then before the Liverpool game I had a small lead in the Cup and Salah on my side, while the opponent had JWP and Phillips. Phillips didn't even play.

      I then dropped out of the Cup with a one point difference, 70-71 and as if that wasn't bad enough, I have been preparing my entire team for the DGW over the last few weeks. This means I have hardly any players for the BGW and with a free hit I will not only lose 0.2 or 0.3 on DCL, but also 0.2 or 0.3 on Salah and other underperforming players like TAA.

      + I'm a diehard Liverpool Supporter and obviously gutted af.

      + There was at least one clear pen for us tonight which pi*ses me of really strongly. Several other wrong decisions including a both footed tackle on Milner which could possibly have been "darkest shade of yellow" as we say here.

      I'll have a huge amount of Single Malt now to come down and relax.
      This is to build up everyone here who is annoyed. As you it could also be worse.

        even worse, it's 23 from the bench.

        Ouch! I think JWP is a player to set and forget, never know when he will get points inconsistent - but on set pieces.

          I fkn hate having more options than 11 nailed starters in my team. It never works out and I'll wildcard my team back to 11 starters to avoid overthinking. Never have 2 playing GKs in my team as well.

            Honestly I actually dislike BB because of this. Prefer it didn't exist, but like you said, I hate having 2 gks, hate having rotating front 8, its just a nightmare and a waste of funds generally. Get your BB out the way, and ditch the chaff and move on

        The referee was abysmal tonight, should be looked at. Aside from the penalties how he let two scything tackles on James Milner go unpunished is beyond the pale.

        That's a rough one man. But don't worry too much about the cup - 70 points is a nice score this gwk and the odds of winning that cup are astronomical anyway

        Easy. 40point. Soucek first on my bench.

      7. Boberella
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        You still scored 70 though! Just a bit of bad luck. On paper you benched the right people.
        If it makes you feel better..... A guy in my mini league scored 25 points for the week, captained DCL and his only return was Vardy's assist. Highest scoring player in his 15 was KWP - who he benched.

        Chin up.

      Is this enough for gw18 or taka hit to get a City defender?

      Martinez
      Dier, Tierney
      Son, KDB, Bruno, Zaha, Grealish
      DCL, Brewster

        You look OK save your transfer for next gameweek.

      2. matiakez

        Your only missing a city defender so think your OK.

    22. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
      • 11 Years

      Finally made my decision. Dumped Salah for Fernandes.
      Let's me have 9 players plus Brewster gw18.

      Decided a BB on DGW19 is not worth a -8 for a full 15
      Likely TC DGW19.

      1. Qaiss
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        What will you do if Salah hauls in 19?

        1. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
          • 11 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          I honestly don't think he will. Man United likely to beat Liverpool as they are on form. Plus Burnley will just sit back and make themselves awkward to break down.

          1. Qaiss
            • 5 Years
            4 months, 7 days ago

            Doubting Salah cause of a few blanks isnt the way to play this game

            1. themaindanger
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              4 months, 7 days ago

              Not getting rid of him, but are you still giving Salah the C in DGW19?

              1. Qaiss
                • 5 Years
                4 months, 7 days ago

                Him or KDB yes.

            2. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
              • 11 Years
              4 months, 7 days ago

              Not because of a few blanks, but because of body language, fixtures, price, and more consistent better options - in my case Fernandes.

    23. jason_ni
      • 5 Years

      Salah has pretty much ruined my season (along with my own poor decisions!)
      GW9 - remove Covid Mo, proceeds to return in the next 5 games that I dont own him.

      GW15, i need him for WBA. Have Bruno and KDB, want to keep KDB for the 18 dbl, sell Bruno(as part of 4 point hit)
      GW16, capt Mo, does nothing, Bruno hauls against Leicester. F-it, i need Bruno back, but still want to keep Mo for Newcastle, Kdb must go.
      GW17, capt Mo, does nothing, kdb blank gw slightly softens the blow of moving him out instead of Mo.
      GW18, Mo, does nothing, thankfully no Capt, and KDB decides to haul now. Need KDB back
      GW19, Mo get out of my team. KDB back in, will be part of a -4 to get an extra player.

      This makes me weep looking at this, he caused my rank to die in the 5 weeks i didnt have him, and he has continued to help my rank die since I brought him in.
      I hate him!

      1. Gudjohnsen
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        I know how you feel.

        I'm on the same boat.

        Worst is that I felt he looked poor before Palace but that brace and assist hooked me to captain him 3 gws. Lost 30 points easily.

      2. Mr. O'Connell
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        I decided to perma captain him after the Palace game having had a few blanks before and during that week. I've been relying on lucky hauls from the likes of Dallas and Holding to maintain rank. Gonna stick with it in the double, but don't think I'll go near the triple captain just yet.

      3. Jimmy Boy
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Similar story here, picked Mane over Salah on a gameweek 9 wildcard owing to the latter having covid at the time. Mane proceeds to transform into a donkey whilst Salah brings in double digit hauls the following GWs. Finally have enough and the swap them around for a -4 against WBA for Mane to score and Salah to transform into a donkey instead for the first three games of owning him. Consequently in most of my mini leagues I've gone from the title race to a lower mid-table scrap during this time.

      Hi guys, thoughts on below FT team? Would you swap Dias/Rashford for Bailly/Sterling to go double Man City attack and add Utd def?

      Leno
      Dias Stones Holding
      KDB Bruno Rashford Son Saka
      Kane Wilson

      Thanks

    26. Mr. O'Connell
      • 8 Years

      Wonder what Salahs ownership will be like for the double after 3 blanks and then a fixture blank.

      1. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Will be interesting the lure of KDB/Fernandes/Son will be strong. Salah looks like he needs another rest.

    27. Neo-Viper
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      How did i do for this FH team? Care to suggest any obvious changes?

      Darlow Johnstone
      Cancelo Baily Stones Holding Targett
      KDB Bruno Son ESR ElGhazi
      DCL Wilson Kane

    28. Tomsk
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Which if Salah, Fernandes and De Bruyne would you keep if they weren't on penalties.

        1. Mr. O'Connell
          • 8 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          Salah

      • Steager
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Looking for a bargain keeper on WC:
        Will any of the below 3 start DGW?

        1.FORSTER
        2.RANDOLPH
        3.STEFFEN

        1. waldo666
          • 10 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          I don't think Steffan or Forster will play either in the double, I'm not sure the situation with Randolph.

        2. Jersey Boy
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          Nope

      • tafrère
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        I should ask this differently.

        What makes you think there will be a better time to use the FH than GW18 ?

        Any infos about possible hard blank gameweeks later ?

        1. ViperStripes
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          Would rather use it on a DGW later in the season.

          Got 8 players

        2. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          4 months, 7 days ago

          29 could be an absolutely horrendous GW, can see an average of 10 points being recorded that week.

          Naturally, that makes it the perfect FH week!

        3. BUZZBOMB
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          I dont. If I could get 8+ out, I wouldnt use it. I can get 6 so using it. Hopefully I can plan and manage something next BGW that minimises impact then, but for now, a BGW immediately before a DGW that I can BB and get up to 30 players scoring, why wouldnt I. 30 players DGW19 c/f maybe losing 3 or 4 i.e. 8 players out next BGW seems a no brainer to me.

        4. themaindanger
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          4 months, 7 days ago

          Depends on your team. I only have 4 players in 18, as I've been building for DGW players in 19. I am definitely using FH in 18.

        5. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
          • 11 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          Well considering Man City and Spurs will have more doubles. I think there are better options in future. Plus I will have 9 players plus Brewster for gw18 so FH a waste for me.
          Also bench boost not an option for me because it would cost me a -8 to try and get full value out of it.

          So I am biding my time.

      • Finding Timo
          4 months, 7 days ago

          I know City got 2 cup games coming up but views on which better please for GW18/19 a) sterling & cancelo or b) KDB & stones?

          1. themaindanger
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            4 months, 7 days ago

            Not much in it, but I think KDB is the best captain for both 18 & 19 , so I'd say b.

            1. Finding Timo
                4 months, 7 days ago

                Yeh good point Cheers , KDB better captain option so at the moment likely to go him & stone

              Googled it, and no, not affected.
