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.

    Might be stupid but...

    Would you BB:
    Johnstone Bamford Dallas Davis?

    I really wanna get rid of the BB and honestly, it's such a pain to upgrade Davis because I'd have to lose Son.

    1. La Roja
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      No way I’d BB that lot

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        8 months, 5 days ago

        Yeah it kinda sucks haha. Alternatively I take a -8 and do Son + Davis > Cavani + Foden. Would turn that Davis slot into Cavani..

        1. My heart goes Salalalalah
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 5 days ago

          I would. But Foden has to play both

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            8 months, 5 days ago

            Sorry just realized it's not Foden. It would be Soucek.

            1. My heart goes Salalalalah
              • 4 Years
              8 months, 5 days ago

              Absolutely

        2. La Roja
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          8 months, 5 days ago

          I am not sure about selling Son

          He could have had a hatty yesterday

    2. Amey
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Nahh

    3. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      No, keep the BB and keep Son as well

    4. King Kohli
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      In a similar dilemma but I feel its better to BB 26 unless you can get a good bench this week without hits.

    5. More Cowbell
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      I guess it depends if you thnk you'll get a better opportunity later.

      I'm holding as still have wildcard and will probably do w/c then bb the week after when the other DGWs are known

    6. My heart goes Salalalalah
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Well, Davis won't play. Maybe if you had 2/3 Leeds and Son/Kane. Tough one

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

        He might due to the Rona

    7. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Dont lose Son. Dont play BB.

    8. MessiMagic
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      BB in another single week then maybe don't know seems not worth it ..I know it will work as Bamford might score ofc ...but still wouldn't do it .. Win win situation anyway

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

      You can get more pts from your bench during normal gw with better fixtures. And there are going to be more dgw:s also. A good bench is needed so no reason to hurry.

    10. Tambling5
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      No save it for later in the season? After second wild card perhaps at another DGW perhaps. Can't see much point using it this week, with 5 points extra a fair chance.

    11. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Christ no

    12. Ragabolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      No way

    13. EVILFUK
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      I was thinking about bench boosting my Leeds players next week against Newcastle, Newcastle are terrible at the moment.

    14. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      I would just play it and be done with it

  2. King Kohli
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 5 days ago

    If going with WC 25 BB 26 FH 29 strategy, when do you plan to use your TC chip?

    Salah looks a decent candidate this week or are you waiting for Kane/Son in a spurs dgw?

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      If I TC anyone it'll be KDB

      1. King Kohli
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 5 days ago

        Kdb looks great on paper as a TC this week.
        But his finishing has been really poor recently and City are not exactly free scoring at the moment.
        Also I feel the game vs Villa will be quite cagey and City could find them hard to break down.

    2. Marcin the Pole
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Not sure I'd TC a Spurs asset given how they play atm. Also not convinced by Salah this week. I'd hold it, with covid messing up the fixture list there'll be plenty more opportunities.

      1. King Kohli
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 5 days ago

        I understand Salah & Pool have been sluggish off late but Salah with two home games is as bankable as it can get imo.
        Can definitely see him getting atleast a goal this dgw.

        1. Krionos
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          8 months, 5 days ago

          He has 2 home games. I expect nothing less than at least 2 goals!

    3. L'Aeroplanino
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      think there will be more small DGWs to play the TC chip

    4. aleksaa2
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      There will be more DGWs, smaller ones though, if I recall corectly in GW33 and possibly GW37.

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

      I had been considering TC Bruno, but that is now gone. KdB hasn't delivered and Salah hasn't been great. There will be more postponements and more dgw:s. I don't like the situation, but I will probably wait for the right moment to come and hope that it comes.

      1. King Kohli
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 5 days ago

        Salah or KDB TC could be the right moment this week.

  3. Bobby_Baggio
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 5 days ago

    Really tricky to decide on what to do. Palm was to BB but doesn't seem worth now. Can I get rid of Raphina for Foden and Balbuena for Dawson for -4?

    Johnstone - McCarthy
    Justin - Robbo - Coufal - Balbuena - Alioski
    Salah - Son - Bruno - Soucek - Raphinha
    Kane - Adams - Bamford

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Good transfers. I may even be tempted to BB that

    2. Yes Ndidi
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Yes to the transfers. Probably yes to the BB as well. Just.

  4. Marcin the Pole
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 5 days ago

    Thoughts on Gundogan as a DGW option? Looked lively again last night...

    1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Nailed?

    2. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Very good for that price and now playing every match it seems, but always a risk with Pep, as you saw with Sterling and Jesus benched last game.

  5. Little Red Lacazette
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 5 days ago

    0FT 1.8ITB.

    Martinez
    Coufal Dias Dallas Taylor*
    KDB Bruno Salah Son
    Bamford Antonio

    Johnstone Adams Bednarek Bissouma

    A. Taylor -> Cancelo/Stones -4
    B. Bissouma -> Soucek -4

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      B and bench Taylor

  6. jammie26
    8 months, 5 days ago

    Loris, Neto, Saiss & Dallas on my bench in 19. Worth a BB or not?

    1. jammie26
      8 months, 5 days ago

      4 nailed starters all with good fixtures? Obvs id prefer some double gameweekers in there..

    2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      I would.

    3. Fit_to_drop
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Think its one of the better BB's ive seen anyway.

  7. Inazuma X1
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 5 days ago

    Any news on Matip?

    1. TorresMagic™ - 6dcode
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Pretty sure I read he won't be available to play United.

  8. McSauce
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    8 months, 5 days ago

    Going without KDB and Salah (TC)

    A) Stupid stop that
    B) Smart as could need a rest

    1. Marcin the Pole
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      I won't have KDB. Have Salah and Mane double up instead.

      1. Cruyff's Eleven
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 5 days ago

        This.

        KDB too hot and cold IMHO

  10. Stormbringer22
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years

    Son > KDB(C) -4 worth it?

    Really don't want to lose Son but no other way of getting in City attack.

    1. More Cowbell
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Possibly...whos the other transfer?

      1. Stormbringer22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 5 days ago

        DCL to fodder

  11. The Train Driver
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 5 days ago

    BB

    Johnstone** Holding Dier Anguissa**

    ?

    1. L'Aeroplanino
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      no

  12. Pringle
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 5 days ago

    Antonio? Do we really expect him to play more than 90 minutes over the double?

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Think he plays in both but gets subbed off early. All in all, I reckon he plays 90+ mins

    2. SweepaKeepa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      It’s a risk due to return from injury. But after selling Haller is he not now their only option?

    3. Knock Down Your Aerial
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      He’ll play both but limited mins.

    4. Chrisitis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Its 13 days since he playes 30 mins agains Everton. How much time does he need?

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 5 days ago

        he played 90 vs Stockport in the cup and looked shattered

    5. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      120-140 mins

  13. Bumbaclot
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 5 days ago

    Anyone think it’s worth doing robbo and son to stones and kdb for a -8??

    I have no city cover

    1. L'Aeroplanino
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      really tough, would be a no brainer last week had you not FH.

    2. Yes Ndidi
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Trouble is that Robbo is a winger that gets extra points for CS. I wouldn't lose him for the double anyway. Kdb looks shot at the moment and if they only play once each, Son has the better fixture.
      I've just taken a -8 to get City cover, but I was letting go the slightly lesser FPL assets of Klich and Lowton for Foden and Dias.

  14. La Roja
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 5 days ago

    What to do here chaps?

    Martinez*
    Zouma* Coufal* Stones* Dallas
    Son Salah* Mahrez* Bruno*
    Kane Bamford

    Forster Pieters* DCL Romeu

    Is Mahrez DCL ➡ Foden Firmino/Jesus worth -4?

    1. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Since you have Mahrez you might as well keep, would just deal with DCL, maybe Antonio?

    2. PlayPercentage
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Mahrez could start the next game, with Foden on the bench.

      1. La Roja
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 5 days ago

        That’s true

        I don’t have KDB and concerned with it tbh

    3. james 101
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Very difficult to decide mate. Pep roulette. Not sure I’d take a hit.

  15. Ninjaa
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 5 days ago

    0.6m itb. 1ft. Have Bamford and Adams. Callum Wilson to

    A. Watkins
    B. Antonio
    C. Another
    .

    1. aleksaa2
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      I'd rather get rid of Adams this GW than Wilson. Both Watkins and Antonio are good options.

    2. Ninjaa
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Just noticed that Wilson has a Dgw ?? Have the fixtures changed recently?

      1. TeddiPonza
        • 11 Years
        8 months, 5 days ago

        Yes AV Eve off this gw and AV New instead.

    3. JBG
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Adams to B

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Got him already. Keeping and playing him.

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 5 days ago

        I am thinking of getting him too. Overlooked. Can be a good differential. Planning this: Kane + Ampadu to Vardy(C) + James. Should work, right?

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          8 months, 5 days ago

          Yes that should work.

          1. Dark Side Of The Loon!

            Thanks!

    Steve Bruce "Var is ruining the game" .When they've got their penalties Var was ok.Ridiculous.

    1. aleksaa2
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Imo VAR is great, human factor ruins it. They need ten minutes for a desicion and they didn't set clear rules, what is a handball, foul etc.

  17. More Cowbell
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    8 months, 5 days ago

    Bottomed... pick the best option please:

    1) Play Adams (lei) & bench Dallas
    2) Play Dallas (BRI) & bench Adams
    3) -4 hit to do Adams to Watkins (mci, NEW) and bench Dallas

  18. MessiMagic
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 5 days ago

    Lads would you rather
    A Werner and Sterling -4
    B Vardy and Son
    C. Cavani and Salah. -4

    Thanks

    1FT. £0.4 cash.

    Martinez
    Robbo Stones Zouma
    Salah Rashford Bruno Soucek Son
    Bambam Vardy

    (Steer Dallas 3.9 4.4)

    Should I get Cresswell in for Zouma?

    Anything else jump out?

    Cheers!

    1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Maybe. But Zouma might match Creswell.

      1. james 101
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 5 days ago

        Could do. Fixtures with Cress though right?

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 5 days ago

          For sure. Well actually it makes sense. Do it.

    2. SilentLemonMan
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Most teams will cover WH defence, so is a safe move

  20. SilentLemonMan
    8 months, 5 days ago

    How worth it is Salah ?

    Would need to do Vardy/Son/Harrison > Salah/Antonio/Barnes (-8)

    Already have KDB.

    1. james 101
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Not worth it IMO

    2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      I wont lose Vardy and Son.

    3. Black Knights
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      I'm not losing Son AND Kane to accommodate him.

    Do I win cup match?

    Me - Holding + 1 point
    Opp - Tierney

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      It's possibly.

    2. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Probably 70% chance you win, both with 2 or both with 6, but I have Tierney so hopeful of attacking returns.

    3. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Possible. Mine is an issue in my ML:

      I have Holding + Mitchell + 6 points
      He has Tierney + ESR + Laca

      And I am an Arsenal fan!

      1. Iceball
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 5 days ago

        I think Laca will do damage so he wins.

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 5 days ago

          Would love that as an Arsenal fan.

    Mane to KDB worth a hit?
    Maybe TC KDB (or Salah)

    1. james 101
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Salah tc is tempting me

      1. Iceball
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 5 days ago

        Yeah, Im leaning to that since Salah has more rest than KDB, even though tougher games Salah should be back to hauling at some point (with fresh legs)

  23. McPollolocco
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    8 months, 5 days ago

    My team:
    McCarthy Martinez
    Coufal, Alioski, Cancelo, Targett, Reece James
    Salah, Zaha, Bowen, Pulisic, Rodriguez
    Bamford, Kane, Ings,

    Should i set Bench Boost??

  24. ShaunGoater123
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 5 days ago

    thinking of ditching the BB and doing a minus -8 for TAA & Raphinha > Dias & Foden. Leave me playing:

    Johnstone
    Dias / Coufal / Maguire
    Salah / Son / Fernandes / Foden / Soucek
    Kane / Bamford

    McCarthy / Wood / Dallas / Johnson

    Thoughts? leaves 0.9 ITB

  25. Ajax Hamsterdam
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 5 days ago

    Areola / cresswell / lowton /Smith rowe(one game)

    GTG for BB ? Thanks

    1. TorresMagic™ - 6dcode
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Not great outside Cresswell

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Yep, good to go I recon, hopefully 20 points there

    3. umerlfc
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      I'd go for it
      Creswell is the decider

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 5 days ago

        Thanks

        1. umerlfc
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 5 days ago

          But do see if there's anyone else in your starting 11 that you can bench instead of Creswell then just hold the BB

    4. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Thanks all. Could also move Smith Rowe to a 5.3 mid for free

    5. ShaunGoater123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      i wouldn't both BB that. Cresswell is good but don't see a clean sheet for either fulham or burnley across the 2 games. and smith rowe could do well in his game, but its just 1 game and always chance of rotation

    6. SilentLemonMan
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Press the button

  26. Warby84
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 5 days ago

    DDG
    Dias Cancelo Coufal Tierney
    Salah De Bruyne Fernandes Soucek
    Lacazette Bamford

    Martinez Wilson Smith-Rowe Yedlin

    Think I might BB this? Any thoughts?? I could move on Yedlin but don’t really see the point of a -4.. Just have Tierney Lacazette and Bamford as singles..

    1. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Yedlin to Dawson -4, 0.2 off Ogbonna

  27. umerlfc
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 5 days ago

    Who scores more in DGW 19

    A) KDB + 8 points
    B) Areola + Dallas + Raphinha + Dallas

    1. TorresMagic™ - 6dcode
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Why 2 x Dallas?

      1. umerlfc
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 5 days ago

        Watkins!

    2. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Why is Dallas listed twice? I reckon A

      1. umerlfc
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 5 days ago

        Ugh, It's Watkins

    3. umerlfc
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      The 2nd Dallas is Watkins in B

      1. Black Knights
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 5 days ago

        A

  28. BigAsGiroud_
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 5 days ago

    1)JWP and Wilson to Mount and Antonio(-8)
    or
    2)Wilson to Antonio(-4)
    for bench boost

    1. TorresMagic™ - 6dcode
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 5 days ago

      Depends on the bench.

      1. BigAsGiroud_
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 5 days ago

        If I did the -8, I’ll have Johnstone Ayling Justin Bamford on bench

  29. Ajax Hamsterdam
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 5 days ago

    Could do Smith Rowe to a 5.3 mid for free who has a dgw. One of the Fulham or w brom mid worth it ? Thanks
