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.

    Is Vardy a captain option over KDB or Salah?

    Tempted, but bad history of capping him putting me off.

    1. Kuzser
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Don’t think so... minutes can be easily managed, just 72 hours between games

    2. JabariParkersEyelid
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Having him should be enough.

      At least I hope so, held him for weeks.

    3. D.Glynn
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      I'd go Salah

  2. Kuzser

    Will appreciate you help guys- which bunch you prefer as a part of BB team?
    Candidates to be transferred out are: 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

  3. deadsquad

    Does having McCarthy, Harrison, Shaw*, Gibbs* in the bench good enough to activate BB?

    1. Gabbiadini
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I would say no.

  4. Il Capitano
      3 months, 4 days ago

      1FT 0.3m ITB

      Johnstone
      Robertson Justin Lowton Coufal
      Soucek Bruno Salah Son*
      Vardy Bamford*

      McCarthy* - Raphinha* Dallas* Adams*
      * SGW

      Thinking my routes to some City are either:

      A) Dallas > Stones
      B) Robbo + Son > Stones + KDB (-4)
      C) Robbo + Lowton/Dallas > Double City def (-4)

      Should I bother BB this lot?

      1. CABAYE4
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        I have a similar team and am considering C. A is solid option.

        Don’t think BB is worth it.

        1. Il Capitano
            3 months, 4 days ago

            Yeah, A is a nice compromise, get the City defensive coverage without losing Robbo. Think Robbo probably outscores a City def (-4) in the DGW

        City triple captain time?? De Bryune?

            James, Stones. But it's a compromise and comes with huge 'if fit' issues.

                  Martinez
                  Cancelo, Dias, Cresswell
                  Sterling, Bruno, Son, Raphina
                  Kane, Vardy, Bamford

                  Forster, Amartey, Mitchell, James

                  I fear Sterling may be dropped entirely from the first team and not rested in the last game

                        Thanks for the input. No funds so would need a Kane or Son downgrade. Is it worth a -4? I could be paranoid after the penalty miss, Sterling could play both.

                          Likely to get more responses if you give people options to pick from. Can't expect people to manage your team for you.

                              I’m not asking people to manage my team for me. There are hundreds of potential transfers to do and I was asking opinions for what people think is best. I will be making the decision myself at the end of the day. Thank you though for your extremely helpful response.

                                I'm not trying to be unhelpful. You complained about getting no responses, I'm just informing you that people are more likely to give opinions if you give options.

                                Who do you want rid of? What teams' players do you want in? What's your chip strategy? By just posting a team and asking people what to do, you are by definition asking people to manage your team for you.

                                    Ok, well that was not and is not my intention.

                                    I have all of my chips remaining and don’t intend on using any yet.

                                    If I knew Sterling was not dropped entirely last game, I’d likely hold. I feel a hit to KDB is slightly sideways if Sterling were to play.

                                    Kane and Son to Salah and Antonio was an option for -4.

                                    Son and Sterling to Salah and Foden was another that also leave me with 2.1 itb.

                                      In that case, I like the first option. Spurs do not convince me against SHU, and your lack of Liverpool could be a real rank killer.

                                      I would also hold Sterling. Man City are so hard to predict, and he could so easily go big over the course of the

                                        Double. I wouldn't take a hit to bring in KDB over him.

                                    Ah tricky one. Raphinha to soucek wouldn’t give you enough? Maybe need to stick with sterling for the double? Unless you lose one of Kane or son

                                        Unfortunately not. If Sterling were to play both I’d be happy to keep i think. Suggested some transfers above?

                                  Is it a bad idea to do Bruno > KDB?

                                        It can be backfire. But it can also be good. It is a cointoss.

                                        Bruno vs Liv will probably blank, and might be got a yc as well, so i think its yes.

                                      Yes 2 games in 3 days but then no game for a week and the 2nd game is a huge game for them against Chelsea, what do you think?

                                        He won't be dropped. He's too important for us, and those are two tough games for us.

                                            What about Maddison?

                                              3 months, 4 days ago

                                              Maddison more at risk, seems to be rotated fairly regularly. With Praet out however, his slot is more secure. I'd be fairly confident he starts both, we play better with him in the team.

                                          Vardy’s 34 now and given his injury history there is absolutely no chance Rogers will risk playing him in 2 games over 3 days.

                                            Rubbish. 2 games on 4 days, and he has a bream afterwards until the 27th. I'm confident he plays both.

                                            Yep, plus Ihenacho isn't great and they have an extra day between the games compared to those at Christmas (2 full days break)

                                                Not convinced by Son against Sheffield U. Well aware this could come back to bite me but he doesn't score points against teams that sit back. Dropped him on FH this week and don't regret it.

                                            Pretty much what I’m trying to decide. Losing Son but the Liverpool fixture after is maybe pushing me to do it, not that Pool are exactly tight.

                                            Dias, Stones, Robertson, Coufal (Lowton)

                                            Or is it too risky to go without de Bruyne?

                                              It’s no riskier to go without KDB than it is to go without Salah IMO. Bruno and Son included, all of the big hitters have done well in spurts this season. Just down to luck I guess who you have in your team when they haul.

                                              Anything worth a hit here? Not using BB as team isn't set up for it. At this stage I have 9 DGW players and a bench that is non-existent due to flags.

                                                I think your 11 is good. Only got worth doing would be to give yourself some bench cover, but across a double gameweek you should be fine.

                                                  Yeah I was leaning the same way, not taking a hit might work out this GW assuming that XI all play lol. Thanks.

                                                      Single gameweek against Leicester, poor enough fixtures, mightn’t be fit. Only thing putting me off is a lack of options at the same price

                                                    Wait and see if there’s anything said tomorrow. I would be tempted to hit the -4 seeing as he only has a single gameweek and may not even play that game.

                                                    KDB probably best fixtures but any of them could do well tbh. Not Vardy, he’s most likely to play reduced minutes I think.

                                                      I like C to Cavani as a punt, but B gives nice WH coverage if you don't have anyone else. A is definitely good if Cancelo will play both but he could only play once, hard to tell

                                                      Correct, minimum 3 defenders need to play.

                                                    going with no KDB or city attack is Suicide ?

                                                      I think KDB in particular. You could have city attack and no KDB and that could still turn out really bad for you

                                                      Foden a good option too.

                                                    Evening all, any ideas here?

                                                    Was planning Wilson -> Antonio but now he also has a double perhaps Dier -> Coufal is best? I’m 0.1m short of Cresswell.
