My plan for FPL Double Gameweek 19 amid ever-changing fixture list

Fantasy Premier League managers must bide their time as the Double Gameweek 19 situation continues to swirl around them like a hurricane.

I have laid my plans for the bumper round of fixtures but am always keeping one eye on my shoulder.

In this article, I will go over my current set-up in light of the upcoming fixtures and my response to Leeds v Southampton getting postponed.

In the last week Fantasy managers have had to deal with the uncertainty surrounding potential fixture postponements and rearrangements and I must admit, it came as a relief to finally see the Blank Gameweek 18 deadline approach to take any further decisions out of my hands.

However, further chaos is just around the corner with the first Double Gameweek of the season starting just two days after the final fixture of the current Gameweek.

I have been preparing for this bumper Gameweek since I played my Wildcard back in Gameweek 16, so I thought now would be a good time to go through some of my selections and plans looking ahead. 

My plan has always been to activate my Bench Boost in Double Gameweek 19, but I think it’s worth mentioning that in this ever changing environment it’s important to remain flexible and open minded to any potential changes to the football scheduling. I certainly won’t be activating any chips or making transfers until as late as possible. Information is far more important than catching any price rises for the time being. 

I also believe that now more than ever there is a fair amount of luck involved, so don’t get too downbeat if any fixture amendments go against you.

The situation has changed somewhat since I prepped my squad in anticipation of Bench Boosting in Double Gameweek 19. The biggest problem I am faced with is the lack of Manchester City assets. Not only have City been handed a tasty looking Double Gameweek, with home matches against Crystal Palace and Aston Villa, but they have arguably returned to their brilliant best. 

After brushing Chelsea aside in Gameweek 17, and a great performance at Old Trafford in the Carabao Cup, a nice run of fixtures means City assets are well and truly back in our thinking. 

Like many others, I decided to triple up on Manchester City as part of my Free Hit in Gameweek 18, so I am hopeful for big returns in tonight’s match against Brighton. However, since welcoming back my Gameweek 17 team I don’t see a single light-blue shirt in the squad, and this is something I am keen to address with my transfers this week. 

Looking ahead, Manchester City’s favourable run continues in the three fixtures following Double Gameweek 19 as they travel to West Bromwich Albion, host Sheffield United and visit Burnley. I am not rushing into any decisions but I feel multiple hits could be on the cards in order to get two or three Manchester City players in prior to the Double Gameweek and as part of my long term thinking. 

So, let’s go through some of my selections and how I may decide to use my transfers.

GOALKEEPERS

I wanted to pick Sam Johnstone (£4.5m) as my goalkeeper going forward after the arrival of Sam Alladyce at West Bromwich Albion. I felt sure he would come in and tighten up their defence but heavy defeats against Leeds and Arsenal do not bode well for my decision. 

Hopefully, two weeks on the training ground since their last fixture will help improve clean sheet potential for the Baggies. 

I paired Johnstone up with the cheapest of the Double Gameweek 19 goalkeepers in Fulham’s Alphonse Areola (£4.5m). My expectations are low here but Im hoping with a combined four fixtures between them, they can at the very least rack up some save points for me.

DEFENDERS

My main issue I need to address in this area is the out of favour Fabian Balbuena (£4.4m). With two favourable fixtures in Double Gameweek 19, home matches against Burnley and West Bromwich Albion) I felt the Paraguayan could prove good value. 

It seems, however, Craig Dawson (£4.5m) has firmly locked down a place in the West Ham back-four, so Balbuena is almost a certainty to make way for me this week. This spot could be ideal to bring in the likes of John Stones (£5.0m) or Ruben Dias (£5.8m).

MIDFIELDERS AND FORWARDS

Werner, Son and Kane kept quiet as FPL's two best defences impress again

On paper, my selections back in Gameweek 16 still look alright for Double Gameweek 19. 

Harry Kane (£11.1m) was my only current single Gameweek player, although Patrick Bamford (£6.6m), Raphinha (£5.5m) and Che Adams (£6.0m) have joined that list now. 

Either way, with a difficult fixture run on the horizon from Gameweek 20, when Spurs host Liverpool and Chelsea either side of a trip to Brighton, Kane could be the fall-guy for me in order to fund signing the Manchester City assets. 

The flag on Adams is also something I need to keep an eye on too, especially as he only has one Double Gameweek 19 match now. The possible replacement players in my thoughts for forwards are Michail Antonio (£6.2m) and Ollie Watkins (£6.1m). Although I will be hoping for assurances on both Antonio’s match fitness and the COVID-19 situation at Villa Park before bringing in either player.

My current plan is to take a minus-eight or minus-twelve to bring in Antonio, Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m) and one or both of Dias and Stones. I feel this would leave me with a very strong bench boost side and in good shape going forward. I’m not usually a big advocate for taking hits but the beauty of rebuilding my squad within a Double Gameweek is I feel there’s a good chance the hits will be paid back with interest over the course of the two games. 

Having said all that, the situation has changed once again following my initial plans with Leeds and Southampton down to one match in Double Gameweek 19.

My first response to that is probably to bench my Saints assets and consider the Triple Captain chip instead but there is still plenty of time for this Gameweek to change again before Saturday’s deadline so I don’t want to commit just yet.

Thanks for reading and good luck with your plans.

    Best 4.2 defender for DGW BB. Philips from Liverpool or a SGW player?

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 8 days ago

      There are none

    2. Obi Wan Elokobi
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Literally no one. Can you not 4.3 and get Yedlin

      1. rjcv177
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Good player...bad team lol

    3. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      That 3.9 defender from Leeds

      1. Deulofail
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Struijk. Good shout. No idea about Leeds defence or why he's playing

      2. Hooky
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Cooper and Llorente both back for Leeds so Struijk place in doubt now I would think.

    4. Deulofail
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Mitchell and hope for 2 points

    5. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      No-one really as far as I'm aware. Lascelles if he miraculously becomes fit again (unlikely). Struijk is probably your best bet with a SGW.

    6. Flynny
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I don't think such a dgw option exists......

    7. Deulofail
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Burn? Again, don't know anything about Brigton defence

    8. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Its a long shot. Have to think again, maybe downgrade Antonio or Watkins to cheaper forward.

      1. Yes Ndidi
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Where do you downgrade them to though? Will BDR (dgw) put you within reach of Stones, Dawson, Shaw or similar?
        Might pay off.

  2. Flynny
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Hi....any thoughts on the following moves please?

    Kane, raphinha and balbuena to kdb, Antonio and lowton - 8

    Lowton can be any dgw defender up to 4.7m

    Gives the following bench boost team. 13 x dgw us dallas and Bamford

    Martinez Johnstone
    Robbo dias coufal dallas lowton
    Salah kdb bruno grealish soucek
    Antonio Watkins Bamford

    Thanks

    1. Obi Wan Elokobi
      • 9 Years

    3. HashAttack
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I've got 4.9 and going with Dallas - If I wanted a dgw player it would probably be Konsa (4.7), but did he have Covid, will there be any points v MCI and do I want him after gw19

      1. Flynny
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Cheers....my issue is I already have 3 Leeds , West ham and villa

        That doesn't leave much else!

        It's either lowton or an sgw player like holding....thanks!

      Seems like a lot of hits to me, but if any I'd go A for sure

      1. rjcv177
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Thkx. I need kdb and have to fund with Spurs combo

        1. The VAR Team
          • 1 Year

          Can see that, would be scary not owning Kevin this week

  4. The VAR Team
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 8 days ago

    A friend of mine got Ings in for BGW18 not knowing he wouldn't play. Then Saints lost their double gameweek. Then Ings was confirmed out of the remaining fixture.

    I sent him a condescending text for all three events

    1. rjcv177
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Trailing you on any ML? Lol

      1. The VAR Team
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 8 days ago

        He's 100+ points behind me

        1. rjcv177
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          If he was ahead no text for sure lol i wouldnt

          1. The VAR Team
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Haha, probably true

      🙂

  5. rubberdignerapids
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Is Dallas to Stones worthy of a hit?

    1. The VAR Team
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 8 days ago

      no

    2. The Road to Turfdom
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Yes for me. Leeds are dross defensively and City the best in the league

    3. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 8 days ago

      No

    4. rjcv177
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Yes

    5. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Ideally have both but you could make up that hit very quickly.

      Absolutely for the dgw

  6. balint84
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    What is the priority ranked?
    A) City defender
    B) West Ham def
    C) Adams to Antonio

    1. The VAR Team
      • 1 Year

    1. rubberdignerapids
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 8 days ago

      at least Salah would be immune if the game isn't called off for Liverpool

    2. Obi Wan Elokobi
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      The majority of Liverpool have already had it

    3. HashAttack
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Too much post match hugging of ex team mates?

  8. PascalCygan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    What to do here?

    My bench: McCarthy, Justin (DGW), Bamford, Struijk

    A) BB
    B) No chips
    C) Take another hit (-8) to improve bench and BB

    Starting team (-4):
    Martinez
    Zouma Stones Coufal
    Salah KDB Bruno Son Soucek
    Watkins Antonio

    Thanks!

    1. Honker Muddlefoot
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I’d lean towards B.

      If you did C, how much do you have ITB, and who would you be looking to bring in?

      1. PascalCygan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        0.7ITB. Pondered upgrading McCarthy to De Gea or something but then I'll just want to get rid soon afterwards. And McCarthy might score similar to someone like Johnstone?

        So C is probably the least appealing option TBH.

        1. Honker Muddlefoot
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Yeah, if it doesn’t fit into your longer-range plans, I would probably avoid that extra hit, too.

          I’d still probably lean towards B. Bamford against Brighton should return some points, and as you said, McCarthy could still easily get you save points, even if Leicester score. I’d just worry about the two bench defenders returns.

          Good luck, mate!

          1. PascalCygan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years

            Thanks mate, you too !

    2. The VAR Team
      • 1 Year

      If you have used 2nd WC: A
      Otherwise B

      1. PascalCygan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Thanks. Not used my WC so B might be the way.

  9. Warby84
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    It’s down to

    Wilson
    Antonio (-4)

    Opposition Leanne towards Antonio

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Wilson 100.1 %

      1. OptimusBlack
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Antonio 100% wilson is donkey

    2. Obi Wan Elokobi
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I got rid of Wilson for Antonio. Fixtures too good to ignore and Newcastle are abysmal

    3. Cojones of Destiny
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      still Antonio

  10. umerlfc
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Who scores more in DGW19?

    A) KDB + Vardy + 8 points
    B) Martinez + Maddison + Antonio Wood + Dallas

    1. rubberdignerapids
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 8 days ago

      why is it 2 vs 4 players lol...I'd actually say B, but it's close

      1. umerlfc
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        It's actually 5 players
        Missed the + sign before Wood
        It's TC vs BB
        BB comes at a cost of 8 points but gives players in Option B
        Meanwhile KDB(TC) means him and Vardy + 8 points
        Can't get Vardy in Option B since won't be able to get a decent bench

        1. rubberdignerapids
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 8 days ago

          In that case definitely B seeing as there's only 1 single gameweek player in there

      Got a bit of a dilemma here to get in Man City attacking cover as part of my bench boost and it will require a -8 as I've already done DCL to Antonio. I have 1.4 ITB - which do you think is best option?

      A. Son & Cavaleiro to Lookman and Sterling (c)
      B. Son & Cavaleiro to Smith Rowe & KDB (c)
      C. No City attacker, keep Son & Salah (c)

          I've thought about it but I don't want the problem of him playing one game then not the next. I can't see him starting both games in double.

        Kane, Lacazette, Burke to Antonio, Brewster, Salah worth -8?

        1. Invincibles

          Just about yeah

            Cheers. Guess it might be if I TC Salah

        Is Balbuena, Bissouma, DCL > Dias, Foden, Antonio worth -8?

        It would give me a much stronger bench to BB.

      8. Malinwa
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        A) Foden (nailed?)
        B) Soucek

        1. ElliotJHP
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Not nailed but I would go A, Pep will stick with him whilst he maintains this form imo

      9. SilentLemonMan
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Planning to smack that bench boost button. Still have 1FT. I'm leaning to A and C for -4.

          A) Son > Rashford
          B) Harrison > Soucek
          C) Holding > Coufal ?????
          D) GTG

          Allison (Fabianski)
          Dias Stones Maguire Justin (Holding)
          Bruno KDB(c) Son Saka (Harrison)
          Vardy Bampot (Watkins)

            Sounds good to me

          2. Invincibles
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            B, don't think Rashford gets anything against Liverpool.

            • 5 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            C

            Very good team apart from no Salah.

            1. SilentLemonMan
                3 months, 8 days ago

                Thanks - I've been trying to get him in! Could do Vardy/Son/Harrison to Salah/Antonio/Barnes.... but don't think it is worth it.

            FH active

            A) Foden + Robertson

              Holding and Firmino to Cancelo and Antonio for double game week ?

              1. SilentLemonMan
                  3 months, 8 days ago

                  not convinced by Antonio's minutes even with Haller gone

                Which one:

                A) Son + DCL --> KDB + Brewster (-4)
                B) Kane + Raphinha + DCL --> Antonio + KDB + Brewster (-8)

                  is Brewster playing in either? or fodder?

                2. SilentLemonMan
                    3 months, 8 days ago

                    anything which involves Brewster makes me want to run and run far.. but A if you need KDB

                    FH? gtg except don’t like Gund pick

                    1. Invincibles
                      • 7 Years
                      3 months, 8 days ago

                      No, just a -4

                    looks good, provided you have a nice sofa for the Liverpool games

                      • 7 Years
                      3 months, 8 days ago

                      Have funds for McCarthy to Allison and considering it

                      1. Dichio24

                        3 months, 8 days ago

                        Randolph could be a great option if Fabianski is out

                        1. Invincibles

                          Can afford fab, have 3.1itb

                            Think he will be back in time for the DGW

                        Exact funds for Son > Salah -4, would lose 0.4 value in Son.

                        1. SilentLemonMan
                            3 months, 8 days ago

                            i would do that if i could - my issue is no salah and would need a -8 and would need to downgrade vardy and son

                      Kane & Mitchell > Antonio & Stones (-4)?

                      looking at ways to free up funds to get either Bruno/Rash/Son in my midfield post dgw

                      1. SilentLemonMan
                          3 months, 8 days ago

                          sounds like you have a plan, back yourself

                        What's the max hit that is reasonable for DGW? Thinking of going for -20 to play BB but seems too much although I also think it'll pay.

                          • 9 Years
                          3 months, 8 days ago

                          -12 at a push -20 no way you're making it up

                            3 months, 8 days ago

                            Even if all players playing DGW?

                          - 8 max , WC rather than a -20

                            I can't play BB if WC. And I can play 11 (SGW and DGW) without WC.

                          3 months, 8 days ago

                          That's a waste of BB

                          3 months, 8 days ago

                          I played a -24 in GW37 a few seasons ago (a last ditch attempt to win a minileague); it went completely tits up. Wouldn’t recommend it.

                            Well looks like I can only take -8 and field in 11 DGW and saves BB. Ta

                          -20 is madness -8 okayish -12 if you professional

                            3 months, 8 days ago

                            I can professionally take -12 but 3 of my first eleven would still be SGW player

                              If them Kane/Son you can easily bench boost .. according to your team tho

                        Antonio* Bamford Kane

                        A) Son > Salah (-4)? would lose 0.4 value in Son
                        B) McCarthy > Fabianski (-4)
