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.

            • 8 Years
            4 months, 12 hours ago

            Aye I know. James + Soucek does look better than Dias + A or B if I BB. Think I might just BB whilst there is a good opp with this squad.

    4. More Cowbell
      • 11 Years

      B by a margin

    Son, Rapinha, Taylor to KdB, Soucek, Coufal for -8. What say you?

    Martinez
    Zouma, Stones, Ayling, Taylor
    Son, Salah, Bruno, Raphinha
    Kane, Bamford

    Steer, Mitchell, Bissouma, DCL

    Unable to BB without taking too much hits. Guess that is out of the window now. Any opinions much appreciated. Thanks.

    1. ElliotJHP
      • 8 Years

      Like it

      1. tinear
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 13 hours ago

        Is it ok to ship Son and keep Kane?

    2. Kuzser
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 13 hours ago

      sounds good

      1. tinear
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 13 hours ago

        Ta. Which of the Spurs would you keep?

  4. diesel001
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 13 hours ago

    Think you need to target teams who play WBA, Burnley, Newcastle, Sheff Utd, Palace, Fulham for defensive returns. And you may not be bothered about playing Arsenal, Wolves either. So:

    Brighton (GW20-GW26): FUL, bur, CPL, wba
    Chelsea (GW19-GW24): ful, WOL, BUR, shu, NEW
    Palace (GW21-GW26): WOL, new, BUR, FUL
    Man City (GW19-GW22): CPL, wba, SHU, bur
    WBA (GW22 - GW28): FUL, shu, bur, NEW, CPL
    West Ham (GW19-GW24): BUR, WBA, cpl, ful, SHU

    I'd be happy to let Brighton go because they haven't shown much defensively.

    But for those looking to build for DGW19 and onwards, then double Man City, one Chelsea, one West Ham looks good. With Palace and Johnstone (WBA GK) benched.

    1. More Cowbell
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 13 hours ago

      Nice analysis, thanks. Which Chesea player is the question for me and how do you fit them in at the moment!

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 4 Years

        R. James?

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 13 hours ago

      Only one I’m not sure about on that list is Fulham, they actually look like they could have a goal or 2 in them

  5. youzef

    McCarthy
    TAA Cancelo Aurier
    Salah Fernandes Raphinha Soucek

      Coufal in and if Tierney injured Justin in

  9. pstokes2010

    Bottomed. Any changes needed here? Have 11 players playing a double. Worth bringing in another City defender?

    Johnstone
    Chilwell Cancelo Justin Cresswell
    KDB(c) Fernandes Salah Soucek Maddison
    Wood

    McCarthy Bamford Dallas Adams

    1. Jamb0

      Bench boosting I assume?

      1. pstokes2010
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 13 hours ago

        I’m not sure. Worried McCarthy won’t start. Other option is Wood to Antonio.

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 13 hours ago

      Nice one unless for free won’t change

  10. Kuzser
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 13 hours ago

    Which combo you would prefer as a part of BB?
    Currently have Brewster, Saka, Sterling, Dier

    1) Antonio - Mane - ASR - Dier for -8
    2) Brewster- Salah - Souchek -Dier for -8
    3) Brewster - Salah - ASR/Rice - Cancelo/Chilwell for -8
    4) Antonio - Sterling - Saka - Shaw/4.8def for -4

    Rest of the team is:
    Johnstone Martinez
    Dallas* Stones Coufal Justin XXX
    Son* KdB Bruno XXX XXX
    Laca* Bamford* XXX

  11. Whazza

    "Should I BB this? Good player with good fixture x 4"

    Nah mate wait til you have Salah and KDB on your bench with DGWs!
    smh

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 13 hours ago

      Yeah so many super stingy BB people. If you have 4 good players with good fixtures, do it.

      1. Whazza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 13 hours ago

        Ay you tell 'em girl!

  12. King Kohli
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 13 hours ago

    What would you do?

    A. BB this week - Meslier Raphinha Dawson Anguissa

    B. WC 25 BB 26 FH 29

    1. OptimusBlack
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 13 hours ago

      B

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 13 hours ago

      A - get it done and out of the way and then focus transfers on maximising points from first XI

  13. fr3d
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 13 hours ago

    Taking hits to stuff players on a BB is mind blowing to me. You're only fooling yourself

    1. Whazza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 13 hours ago

      Who cares about -8 when you score 130 😉

    2. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 13 hours ago

      That's a too simple view - I guess most who are taking hits do it to accommodate KDB + Salah + Bruno for a BB.

  14. Timon
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 13 hours ago

    Kane, Saka ➡ Antonio & Mane.

    Yes? for (-4)

    I would have 10DGW players, if I do the move. Only outlier would be Bamford. No Salah though

  15. Sgt Frank Drebin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 13 hours ago

    I was plannning on getting KDB for the double GW, but have no idea for whom to be honest. Only midfielder in my team without 2 games is Son, but I'm not sure I want to sell him and then buy him again but for 0.4 more. Thoughts? My midfield is Salah, Fernandes, Son, Grealish and Soucek.

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 13 hours ago

      Only way of getting KDB is sacrificing Son.

      I'm in a similar situation where I have to sacrifice Son to get Salah.

    2. Jamb0
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 13 hours ago

      City have nice fixtures going forward.. why would you swop KDB back to Son after the double?

      1. Sgt Frank Drebin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 13 hours ago

        Maybe not neceserilly for KDB, but I would like to get Son back somehow

  16. Gudjohnsen
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 13 hours ago

    Son, Lacazette to Salah (TC), Decordova-Reid for -4?

  17. PogBruno
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 13 hours ago

    What would you do ?

    A) Start Wood - WHU a, LIV a
    B) Wood ➡ Watkins (-4) -> who has nice fixtures post GW19
    C) Start Tierney (NEW h) and bench Wood
    D) Tierney ➡ 5.5 def (-4) and bench Wood

  18. JIMMY764
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 13 hours ago

    A) DCL to Antonio (no chip)
    B) DCL + Steer to Antonio + Fabianski (-4) (BB Fabianski Neto Dallas KWP) - Also frees up that 3rd Villa slot.
    C) DCL + Son to Vardy + Soucek (-4) (no chip)

    1ft 0.0itb WC TC BB intact.

    Martinez
    Coufal Dias Holding
    KDB Salah Bruno Son Neto
    Bamford Watkins

    This paragraph in the artcle above is scary, isn't it!

    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.

    1. tinear
      • 1 Year

      So Son to KdB is a no you think?

      1. More Cowbell
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 12 hours ago

        That's my current plan, but that paragraph makes me question it. i know others are holding Son. Will either be a stroke of genuis or a disaster i think!

    2. ㅤRising
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 12 hours ago

      You want KDB because he is always close to a monster haul every game. Those hauls are coming sooner or later, its inevitable.

    3. OleGGMU
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 12 hours ago

      AZ clearly shows that it is best to follow ones own mind and decision making , he clearly is all over the place mentally regarding fpl and imho needs a mini break from decision making to find his fpl mojo again. Pundits are clearly all in a tiz as to what to do going forward. if you had a plan and still have relative confidence in it, stay clear of "other voices" stick to the plan and let things play out as they do, try to " get ahead" of this season only leads to frustration and anger. Fpl players plan ....FPL counters with its own, its a mark of the uncertain times both within and outside footie

  20. Newms
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 13 hours ago

    Would you BB Johnstone, Raphina, Dallas and Brewster?

    Can't figure a way to lose Brewster that isn't detrimental to my other transfers.

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 13 hours ago

      Nah, I wouldn't.

    2. Liber
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      No

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 13 hours ago

      I had something similar with Davis instead of Brewster and decided against BB. Come GW26, we can stock our teams up carefully and get maybe BB13-15 DGWs. The only reason our bench boosts look a bit meh is because the Leeds double gameweek got culled.

      1. Pomp and Circumstance
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 12 hours ago

        how many teams might have 2 fixtures in GW 26?

    4. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 13 hours ago

      I would hold off. Brewster 1 pointer is the issue

      1. Newms
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 12 hours ago

        He is going to break his duck soon!

  21. dopellganger

    Ederson ( Steer )
    Coufal Jusin Cancelo Targett ( Kwp )
    Salah Bruno Maddison Soucek ( Zaha )
    Kane Antonio ( Bamford )

    2m itb 1 ft
    Would u do Zaha to Foden and bench Targett? Or should i squeeze in Kdb ? ( only if removing Kane or Salah/Bruno )

    Thanks!

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 13 hours ago

      Ideally I would want to double up with Foden and KDB. I would consider removing Kane to get in KDB

  22. Tonyawesome69
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 13 hours ago

    I'm pretty certain I'll be doing Balbuena and Son to Dawson and Salah (-4)

    I am unsure whether Kane to Vardy (-4) is worth it. Any thoughts? If I do this change, Dawson can be upgraded to Cresswell.

    Martinez

    Havent yet taken a hit in FPL in any season, time to do so now, and if yes any options?
    Bench Boost needed or good without? Spurs and Leeds have really good single fixtures.

    Who is the best captain to have this week ?

    Looking at Cresswell but scared not to captain Salah

    1. aapoman
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 13 hours ago

      KDB and Salah are the top picks. If you have KDB I'd captain him

    2. svasei - Up (?) the Rovers

      Cresswell is not captain material.

    3. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 12 hours ago

      Stick to a premium - Salah or KDB

    4. HMC

      Creswell and captain do not go together
      Would prefer Robbo if choosing a defender

    Good to go?

    Will Barkley’s return put El Ghazi’s minutes in danger?

    1. aapoman
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 12 hours ago

      Yes. Grealish on the left, Barkley behind Watkins and Traore/El Ghazi on the right I think.

        What evidence is there for this? Smith has repeatedly said he wants to keep a settled side.

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years

      El Ghazi or Traore will lose out when Barkley is back. I can't see Smith dropping McGinn or Luiz. Barkley will come back in playing behind Watkins and Grealish on the left
