How Double Gameweek 19 fixture changes have affected my FPL chip and transfer strategies

Like most Fantasy Premier League managers, I am finding it very hard to plan for Double Gameweek 19.

In light of Thursday’s updated fixture list, here is my latest plan for transfers and chip strategies ahead of Saturday’s deadline.

But, you could not have caught me in worse spirits about the way this season is going. Oh, Raz, what have you done to me. 

I know it really shouldn’t matter with everything going on, but Raheem Sterling’s (£11.4m) penalty miss has to go up there with one of my worst ever moments in FPL. 

My Free Hit team was built around him being my key differential, and not content with a spot on the bench until the 82nd minute, Sterling had to go and make things even worse.

Using the brilliant “what if” machine over at LiveFPL.net, I worked out that if Sterling had scored, I would have been catapulted into the top million ahead of my Arsenal contingent facing Crystal Palace.

Even if Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m) had shaken off his fatigue and scored, I’d have still gone up a few hundred thousand places. If ever a moment summed up my season, it happened last night.

With the pain of the miss still fresh in my mind, I now have to turn my attention to planning for the upcoming Gameweeks. We have never known anything like it. Double Gameweeks have dropped off the table, with both Leeds and Southampton now only having one game. There go four players that I had in place ready for Double Gameweek 19.

Aston Villa v Everton is off now too. So, there goes Dominic Calvert Lewin (£7.7m). Dean Smith’s men have earned a fixture back though, hosting Newcastle at the back-end of the Gameweek, although we still don’t know which of their plays have been dealing with coronavirus (COVID-19). And let’s not forget that top target Jack Grealish (£7.7m) is on four yellow cards. Another one against Manchester City and he would miss the second Double Gameweek 19 fixture.

Let’s add to that problem. Bruno Fernandes (£11.3m) is also one booking away from a ban and faces what is likely to be a fiery encounter against Liverpool to come, before playing Fulham. Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) is off form. Manchester City are proving rock solid in defence but a bit of a lottery in trying to work out how many goals they will score, even against so-called ‘inferior’ opposition. Are they back, or were good performances against Newcastle and Chelsea just the result of playing teams in poor form?

I am finding it very hard this season and I know I’m not the only one. It feels almost impossible to plan for things when so much is in flux. But, we must try. I’m not going to give up hope, but I am looking at this season through the lens of what it is. No matter what rank I end up with, I will know what went on. I am allowing myself this season as a freebie, whatever happens.

I think I want to have a bit of fun at this stage. I want to give my squad a bit of a freshening up once Double Gameweek 19 is out of the way. I am interested in Percy Tau (£5.5m), mostly due to my Brighton bias, but also because he presents an intriguing cheap option as a potentially out-of-position option. 

Let’s face it, with competition such as Neal Maupay (£6.1m) it’s hard to imagine Tau won’t feature – and his most natural position is as an attacking midfielder. I expect to see him cementing a regular spot in the team going forward, given our lack of real goal threat over the last few months.

Barring any drastic news from the West Ham camp, I am going to finally make a move for Michael Antonio (£6.2m). West Ham have the best Double Gameweek schedule of the lot, hosting Burnley and West Bromwich Albion. 

The reason why I am so keen is because the Hammers have sold Sebastien Haller (£, his only direct competition, to Ajax. While I don’t expect a full 180-minute outing in Double Gameweek 19 for Antonio, it looks like he has returned from injury at a good time, and got minutes in the FA Cup. With Sterling’s penalty miss making one of my low points of FPL, Antonio’s four goals against Norwich was certainly my high point. If he can get close to replicating this then I’ll be a happy man again.

Speaking of West Ham, this seems a great time to invest in their defence. I know a lot of people have got Vladimir Coufal (£4.7m) and he seems a great option for the double – but a double up with Aaron Creswell (£5.4m) could be gold. I’d back West Ham for at least one clean sheet and Creswell has already registered 6 assists in the league.  No defender has got more. Historically, defenders are often great picks in Double Gameweeks with the likes of Branislav Ivanovic, Aymeric Laporte and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.2m) all registering huge returns in seasons gone by. It wouldn’t surprise me to see a West Ham defender as the top-scoring player for the Gameweek.

Sky Fantasy Football: Sticks and Stones? Who to bring in before the Overhaul? 2

Another strong consideration for me is to double-up with Manchester City defenders. John Stones (£5.0) has finally come into my reckoning due to the consistency of strong performances from himself and the rest of the backline. 

At this point, I don’t think the extra £0.8m is worth it for fellow centre back Ruben Dias (£5.8m) and I think not only does Stones keep his place, but he matches the Portuguese internationals points from now until the end of the season. 

That said, I am very glad to have moved for João Cancelo (£5.8m). I am completely and utterly convinced that this man is going to hit a double-digit return soon. Could it be this week? Is he actually an outside captaincy option with other big-hitting players flattering to deceive?

One player who I think I will be keeping is Son Heung-min (£9.8m). His 62.5% ownership means that I’m not getting much benefit from his returns, but it feels amiss to be selling him before a run of games that includes Brighton, West Brom and Sheffield United. 

I had earmarked a swap for him to De Bruyne, but with Pep Guardiola citing fatigue as the reason he didn’t take Manchester City’s penalty – combined with the fact that his side are still playing without a recognised striker AND that he only has one goal from open play this season, decimating my team and taking out the number one point scorer in the game just feels a bit of a luxury transfer when there are other moves I could be making to try and climb the rankings.

So, with fixture rescheduling putting any plans I had for a Bench Boost on hold, I am considering which chip I should use if any. With Fernandes on four yellow cards, I don’t feel confident enough captaining him this week – which makes Salah the obvious choice. 

The trouble is, I’m just not sure how the Manchester United game is going to pan out. I think it might be a very cagey affair. While I think Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men have the firepower to put a dent in Liverpool’s title charge, a point would suit them. 

Do I really think Liverpool’s incredible home record of 53 wins and 11 draws in the last 64 games will come to an end against United? I’m just not convinced. At this point, I am strongly considering not using a chip at all and saving them for a bit later in the season. There is the guarantee of further Double gameweeks, and maybe a player will emerge as a stronger Triple Captain option on paper then.

Whatever you decide to do this week, good luck! Double Gameweeks are always something to get excited about. My advice is don’t be afraid to chuck a few hits to bring in some more players and make the most of it.

    McCarthy to Fabianski/Martinez worth a hit?

    1. Poison Apple

      Martinez has better fixtures in the short term beyond having a dgw. I wld on the basis on getting it back within 4-5 weeks

    I’m going to have to bench Neto and one of Holding/Dallas this week. Can feel the pain coming already!

    1. NateDogsCats
        1 month, 18 days ago

        I'm benching Holding and Alioski and can definitely see them getting something

      • ALegendJ

        Im benching both Dallas and Ayling, wont be fun

      The fact is that ManCity's performances were good and they have two home fixtures against opponents who are not going to sit back.I don't know if there will be a better time to use the TC chip.

      1. wulfranian
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        And there is no way that Kdb will get a full rest.The most possible scenario is 70 and 90 minutes.

        1. _Ninja_
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Most city fans (on city forums) think Jesus will start. Dampens KDB TC appeal.

          1. NateDogsCats
              1 month, 18 days ago

              Tbh I think I'd prefer that, he's generally looked better in his normal position with an actual striker up the top of the pitch

        2. Qaiss
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          How will Palace not sit back?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Palace won't sit back?

        4. wulfranian
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Yeah Palace will sit back but they will concede on the counter attack.

        Would you BB this? 11 doublers with McCarthy and triple Leeds on bench?

        Martinez *
        Cancelo* Coufal* Dias* Robertson*
        Salah* (c) Mané* Bruno* Soucek*
        Antonio* Watkins*

        McCarthy Bamford Raphinha Dallas

          i like it. hard to imagine getting multiple double gw on a bench boost, so Leeds fixture is pretty tasty.

        2. Yes Ndidi
          • 1 Year

          Yes

          1. Flynny

            Yes

          Yes

            I have the same bench but with Martinez and I'm bench boosting. I'm pondering Raphinha -> El Gazi. What do you recon?

            1. dunas_dog
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              I would worry about getting El Ghazi as we don’t know which Villa players were COVID positive and if they will be fit to return. Would keep Raphinha

        5. RogDog_jimmy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Thoughts on these options?

          a/
          4.0 GK > Mendy
          KWP > Coufal
          (-4)

          b/
          4.0 GK > Johnstone
          KWP > James
          (-4)

          c/
          4.0 GK > Johnstone
          KWP > Justin
          Adams > Antonio
          (-8)

          BB will be
          Bamford, Raphinha, Keeper Move, and either Adams or Antonio (for the extra hit)

          1. W
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 18 days ago

            I like the look of A, and yeah BB sounds good then

          Mahrez kane asm to sterling foden antonio for-8?
          No kdb

          1. RogDog_jimmy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 18 days ago

            sterling has looked garbage and just missed a pen.
            why would you want to spend so much on him?

            1. Gun gun
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              The thing is he will start isnt it?ignore that pen miss

              1. RogDog_jimmy
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                1 month, 18 days ago

                i would have thought that Foden's performances would mean he starts. Not sure on Sterling.
                What other players would it enable? What about Vardy instead of Antonio if you went for someone cheaper?
                Gundo & Foden maybe? (seems crazy)

            2. baines is god
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              Because he has a double gameweek with two great home fixtures and has scored a lot of goals for 3 seasons now (particularly tap ins in home games like Palace and Villa)

              100% a good move even for -8

              1. Gun gun
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 18 days ago

                Will u do that moves now or tmr?

              1 month, 18 days ago

              Sterling came on for such a short time I can see him starting next game

        7. W
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Foden or Gundo?
          Who scores more in GW19?

          1. baines is god
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 18 days ago

            gundogan more likely to start both games but foden more likely to get more points still

          2. RogDog_jimmy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 18 days ago

            feels Foden is more attacking...but who knows.
            i got Foden for the FH just this week and was happy with that decision (obviously)

          3. tempest
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 18 days ago

            Think it has to be Foden at the moment

            I prefer Foden.

            you got a question?

            looks a solid team (assuming not a bb)

            1. baines is god
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              yeah annoyingly having to use FH so can't bench boost

              1. baines is god
                • 9 Years
                1 month, 18 days ago

                The only one I'm sweating is Werner, would love a way to squeeze him in

                1. RogDog_jimmy
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  1 month, 18 days ago

                  i don't trust werner anymore, had him for a while.

                  got to prove it before i commit again.

                  Seems Mane to Fernandes could free up money elsewhere, maybe a better 4th/5th defender.

                  1. baines is god
                    • 9 Years
                    1 month, 18 days ago

                    not much point as pretty certain all my starting XI should at least get some game time and i can't BB

                      More so going forward after GW19.
                      Covid and postponements are happening a lot...a stronger bench seems safer to avoid potential fires later. (but a personal choice for sure).

                2. NateDogsCats
                    1 month, 18 days ago

                    Hasn't scored for 10 games and Chelsea have been pretty poor of late, wouldn't worry at all

              Nice team. Prefer Bruno over Mane though. Only takes a pen against Liverpool then a haul against Fulham and you’re behind.

              Good team, though El Ghazi is a bit of risk, as we don't know who has been affected at Villa, aside from Trezeguet.

              1. baines is god
                • 9 Years
                1 month, 18 days ago

                good point, could axe him, but can't see many other good options around or below 6m

                1. avfc82

                  1 month, 18 days ago

                  Soucek or Lookman maybe?

                  1. baines is god
                    • 9 Years
                    1 month, 18 days ago

                    thinking Soucek. should be guaranteed 4-6 points with a 20-40% chance of extra points or something.

                    Thing is El Ghazi looks dangerous in the front 4 of villa and is on pens. Villa's expected goals for the 2 games is probably like 2.5/3 so I reckon El Ghazi is over 50% chance to be involved in a goal

                      Yeah, he's looked good... I just worry about the affects of Covid / lack of training on the team. Might be fine though, it hasn't affected Fulham.

              Rashford twice or Son once, that is the question

                Rashford I guess when considering gwk 20 fixtures as well.

              14 point net positive on playing a FH versus fielding 8 players........that is most certainly a fail

                Borderline. Anything more than 12points is at least respectable.

              For GW 19
              A- KDB + Wilson + Antonio -8
              B- Son + Vardy + Antonio + 4
              C- Foden + Kane + Antonio +4
              It's all about Sell Both of Kane & Son or Keep one of them

                C seems fun.
                Having Vardy doesn't seem fun.
                Can always shift Foden to a similar price mid later on....there are many good value at that price.

                    Watkins getting a DGW one of which is newcastle with more to come

                      I'm interested as considering getting Watkins ahead of Antonio, it's the lack of info about how COVID has effected the Villa team that deters me.

                    No - looked really exhausted in last game. With heavy fixtures would not be surprised if benched for one of next 2 games

                  A. Grealish + Holding (Current team)

                  Holding Dier Stones Robertson
                  Salah KdB Bruno Son Grealish
                  Bamford

                  or

                  B. Smith-Rowe (for Grealish) + Vardy (For DCL) -4

                  Holding Dier Stones Robertson
                  Salah KdB Bruno Son
                  Bamford Vardy

                  Option C is just get Antonio for DCL and take a punt?

                  Any Cancelo owners worried about the recent resurgence of Zinchenko? He's been out injured for pretty much all season and now is back and has played great.

                  Pep could easily start Zinchenko + Walker

                    1 month, 18 days ago

                    I imagine Cancelo will sit out one of the next two, it isn't based on anything though, just my opinion.

                    City's left side was vulnerable against Brighton and Zinchenko offers nothing in attack. Mendy would be the main man at left back to rival Cancelo.

                  How many of these are worth a -4 for BB?
                  Effectively only -2 per move has they play an extra game. Would have to do Kane to Antonio to fund these moves.
                  A) McCarthy to Martinez
                  B) Balbuena to Stones
                  C) Son to KDB
                  D) Adams to Watkins

                    i'd say B given Balbuena may not play at all.
                    Can you do B, C & Kane move? Seems good bang for the buck.

                    love it. only not sure the stress of 2 full games sweating a goal would be fun.

                      1 month, 18 days ago

                      Decent option but not over Salah, Kdb or Vardy

                      After they conceded that last minute goal against Chelsea, I wouldn't have the courage myself.

                    • avfc82

                      Depends how you wanna play it, but realistically, what's he going to score, 12ish points? Salah or De Bruyne have the higher ceilings, IMO.

                        Dias form matches salah @6. I don’t have KDB and I’d have to rip my team apart to get him so it’s salah or Bruno.

                        With 2 big chances conceded in the last four home games the probability he’ll get 12 points is high. Salah is against two tough def. his ceiling is obviously much higher so probability of salah scoring double figures per match much higher than Dias but is Dias a safer route to 12 points ?

                      Nah, even if City gets 2 clean sheets Salah, Fernandes, KDB can all beat 12 points in a single game without doing anything too out of the ordinary.

                    Would you do:

                    A) Burke -> Soucek (BUR WBA) for -4

                    Or

                    B) Play Dallas (BRI) or Adams (lei) no hit

                    Which is the best option?

                    A) Keep Kane - SHU are terrible. But no DGW.
                    B) Get Vardy - DGW. Good medium term fixtures.
                    C) Get Werner - DGW. But still a quality player and great fixtures.

                    Does Werner still have pens?

                    Thanks.

                    Son to Rashford or Soucek for DGW?

                    A = Rashford
                    B = Soucek
                    C = Silence you fool.

                        Can't, I'm holding my BB and my other Mids are Grealish - Fernandes and Salah all on DGW. To get in both would require a BB and -4.
