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.

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.

    Massive GW coming up, a lot of chips to be played. Real long drawn out gameweek though now the Villa game rearranged!

  2. Saka_me_sideways

      Would you BB this ramble?

      Chilwell, raphinha, Adams

      1. Saka_me_sideways
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Rabble* although they could be rambling

        • Holmes
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          probably not but I would like to to play Chilwell and Raphinha

        • trafalgarlaw
          • 2 Years

          Not sure

          Yes, for me its get it out the way and then there is no excuse but concentrate on strong 11 plus 1 sub

          1. Saka_me_sideways
              1 month, 13 days ago

              Yeah it does seems to be a bit of a hindrance atm.
              Adams is the only one I’m not sure about, but with Ings possible out he could be the main focal point.

                I have ings and currently toying with the idea of adams to antonio and keeping Wilson! Yes its mad but with 2 games anything possible...

            • elwardio
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 13 days ago

              Agree with this though shame no keeper

              1. Saka_me_sideways
                  1 month, 13 days ago

                  Yeah it was a choice of KDB or upgrade keeper and raphinha... the keeper option seemed like it would be -8 to revert back after, so not really worth the hassle imo.

              Probably not. Similar situation below with Adams, underwhelming.

              If you get rid of Adams then maybe. Do you think you’ll be able to set up for a better BB later in the season?

              1. Saka_me_sideways
                  1 month, 13 days ago

                  Only got 6.0 to spend, otherwise I’d be tempted by Watkins.
                  Although the Leeds v Saints double can’t be too far down the line so I’m not too fussed holding on.
                  WC 25, BB26 is maybe the other option, but without knowing the doubles who knows?
                  Plus not many weeks till blank 29 after so would have to take hits galore to prep?

                    Would.you have a fh to navigate blank 29?

                    1. Saka_me_sideways
                        1 month, 13 days ago

                        No... just wasted it on that dross gw lol

                u guys think sterling will start both games?

                1. Flair
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  1 month, 13 days ago

                  Yeah

                  Nope

                  • 10 Years
                  1 month, 13 days ago

                  Think he starts but surely off penalties after missing his past 3

                4. Old Man
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years
                  1 month, 13 days ago

                  Probably - at least I hope so! Pep will want to give him a full game next to boost his confidence. Maybe come off early in the second match.

                Johnstone or Areola for GW19? Johnstone at least has a chance of a CS, you’d have to expect Areola to be relying on save points?

                  • 4 Years
                  1 month, 13 days ago

                  Areola

                • 4 Years
                1 month, 13 days ago

                Do you think Soucek has a good chance of outscoring Son in the DGW?

                1. Flair
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  1 month, 13 days ago

                  Not a chance

                  1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
                    • 4 Years
                    1 month, 13 days ago

                    His floor is essentially 5-6 points though assuming they keep at least 1 CS...

                    1. Flair
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      1 month, 13 days ago

                      Still nope

                2. Holmes
                  • 7 Years
                  1 month, 13 days ago

                  maybe by 2pts

                3. drughi
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 11 Years
                  1 month, 13 days ago

                  yeah I think so but both will probably score somewhere between 7-10 points

                4. stu92
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 13 days ago

                  Possibly. The way Spurs are playing at the minute just 2 points from Son is possible, maybe even the most likely outcome. It’s be a brave man to bench him though.

                  1. Old Man
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 9 Years
                    1 month, 13 days ago

                    This is the correct answer. Possibly.

                5. Space Cadete
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  1 month, 13 days ago

                  50/50

                  Spurs are likely to score but very unlikely to get more than 2 against a Sheff Utd with new resolve. Son is likely to have involvement in any goals scored though. Soucek should have a base of 5 points with reasonable chance of double digits. Ideally, play both

                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 6 Years
                  1 month, 13 days ago

                  Absolutely. I'm expecting 3 points from Son and 20-30 from soucek

                Johnstone
                Coufal Justin James
                Salah Son Bruno Soucek Foden
                Antonio Vardy

                McCarthy Bamford Ayling Mitchell

                A. Mitchell -> Cancelo (-8) and play BB
                B. Save chips and only -4

                Looking to BB this GW. Which option would you go for?

                Mitchell and Adams out:

                A. Dallas and Antonio
                B. Dawson and keep Adams.

                I really feel like the WH games will be low scoring so I am leaning towards B but a bit under whelmed with keeping Adams on a BB.

                1. trafalgarlaw
                  • 2 Years
                  1 month, 13 days ago

                  i'll go a

                2. Saka_me_sideways
                    1 month, 13 days ago

                    A imo.

                    1 month, 13 days ago

                    I think Adams could miss Southampton’s game, depends how bad the concussion was. Which would then mean he doesn’t play at all. Antonio is the better option therefore.

                  Whipping boys (imo) update

                  Attackers vs: Leeds, West Brom, Newcastle, Sheffield, Brighton, Wolves

                  Defenders vs: West Brom, Newcastle, Sheffield, Palace, Burnley

                    • 11 Years
                    1 month, 13 days ago

                    so what do you think for Son and Kane this GW? Sheffield defense has been decent lately

                    1. Flair
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      1 month, 13 days ago

                      Facing crap offenses, last time they faced decent attacks they were beat 3-2 by United and 3-0 by Southampton

                      However the return of their 19/20 midfield should improve them

                    2. Ze_Austin
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 2 Years
                      1 month, 13 days ago

                      Sheffield has faced five bad attacks in a row and kept one CS. Looks a lot more like a false dawn in stats than actual improvement (as against, for instance, Palace's last two matches)

                      I don't know how many goals, but I think Spurs should score 2+ on the counter, making Kane and Son don't buy, don't sell, don't cap for me

                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                        Sadly Kane must go to enable Salah though Liverpool's attack has been poor for a while now

                    Attackers against Sheffield and wolves is a no from me

                  1 month, 13 days ago

                  Back in the top 5k but no city ahead of this massive dgw is a worry. Is KDB prio or maybe city defense more importartant ? Could do Dier and Ayling > Dias and stones for a hit and bench boost with mccarthy and adams

                          Son and Robertson > KDB and Dias/cancelo worth it for a hit ?

                            I'm considering the same

                  Will Creswell outscore Bamford by 4pts this GW?

                      I am tempted to get him and bench Bamford. I know it is ludicrous but it is fan to have double GW player somehow.

                    Im considering an extra hit to bench Raphinha for a West Ham def too.

                        West Ham odds of getting a CSs are 43% + 42%. That's more than decent if you ask me

                        It does indeed.
                        Although Leeds vs Brighton could be high scoring as im expecting both teams to just go all out attack.

                  I see most people going Antonio over Watkins. Is Antonio a safe choice?

                  He hasn't played 90 minutes since GW 2 and only scored 3 goals this season. Also, Watkins seems to have better fixtures after GW 19.

                    He played 90 mins in the FA cup. Looked very rusty and clearly not fit. Im leaning towards going double WH defence instead this week.

                    Watkins could be an option if passed fit from COVID.

                    He is fun/risky/high ceiling pick. And im in!

                    He may have the better fixtures but with the cloud of covid over villa and no names mentioned i think it is a huge risk.

                  Firmino an option? Usually does well against big clubs or is it just myth?

                  McCarthy, Targett, DCL > Martinez, City def, Antonio (-8) --- Worth it?

                  *Martinez*, Forster
                  *City def*, Chilwell, Coufal, KWP, Kilman

                    Which of those 8 DGW attackers are you benching ?? Surely can’t be bench boost with only KWP + X?

                  Mane & DCL ➡️ KDB(c) & Antonio worth -4?

                  Is KDB the best captaincy option this week?

                    Cresswell to rise to (C) contention with 2 CS + 1 Assist + 3~ BPS

                      1 month, 13 days ago

                      Im quite tempted to get him in for a hit for Kilman and bench Raphinha. Most will go for Coufal because of the price he could be a great differential.

                  Son/Kane/Dier > Salah/Wilson/Stones

                  Worth it for -8 ??

                  Not super keen on Wilson, but like the double fixture. Got 8m for a DGW striker

                  It's not a great BB, but should I pull the trigger ?

                  Forster - probably won't play
                  Ayling - home to Brighton
                  Bamford

                      Looking at -8 to bring in KDB, Antonio, Martinez. It would give me 11 DGW players plus the 3 Leeds players on the bench.

                        I'm in a very similar position - always planned to do BB this week but to make it worthwhile i need to take a -8

                        i can justify the fact a BB will almost certainly earn me more points to cover the -8 but i'm worried there will be a much better opportunity to use it (when i havent taken the -8)

                        at the minute ive made 1 FT and i'm still contemplating

                        i think the fact that you dont have a keeper who will play - i probably wouldnt BB - and i'd take a -4 max

                        do you still have your wildcard?

                        if so, maybe use your BB the week after wildcarding so you can get your bench (including keeper) set up without taking the initial hit

                      not in my opinion with City Rotation risk - although he is due a great week

                    Which option is better:

                    A. DCL -> Antonio
                    B. DCL -> Vardy
                    C. DCL, Son -> Antonio, Salah (-4)

                    Thanks.

                    Would anyone do Targett OR Ayling -> Dias (-4)? Not BBing this week.

                    Son -> Foden (-4) also possible.

                    Is it worth a -12 to do TAA, Bissouma, Kane, Adams to Justin, KDB, Watkins, Antonio? Jump from 4 games to 8 (likely 10 really as KDB will be captain). Would then BB with Meslier, Bamford, Soucek, Justin as subs - first XI would all have double games.

                    Could also keep Adams for Antonio to save -4 but I like the potential upside and don’t fancy Adams going forward.

                    Right 2 choices to get KDB In. A OR B?

                    A) Son & Kane --> Vardy & KBD (-4)
                    B) Son + Mitchell + Che Adams --> Stones + KDB + Davis (-8)

                    B means keeping Kane and value tied up in him*

                    Which move has the biggest upside?

                    A) Kane, Saka -> Salah(c), Brewster (Bench)
                    B) Kane, Taylor -> Vardy(c), Cancelo
                    C) Kane, Rashford -> Vardy, Sterling(c)
