Villa handed new Double Gameweek 19 schedule as Everton, Leeds and Saints lose key fixtures

Fantasy Premier League managers have planning their Double Gameweek 19 in something of a limbo state right now – and the situation changed again on Thursday morning.

Aston Villa’s Sunday afternoon meeting with Everton was postponed, handing the Toffees a Blank Gameweek in the upcoming round of games.

However, Villa are still set for a Double Gameweek as their home match against Newcastle was rearranged for Saturday, January 23.

That means they face Manchester City (away) and the Magpies (home) in Double Gameweek 19, while Steve Bruce’s men now face Arsenal and Villa (both away) in the bumper round of fixtures.

Elsewhere, it was confirmed on Wednesday evening that Leeds’ meeting with Southampton, originally, scheduled for Wednesday, January 20, had been postponed to accommodate FA Cup commitments.

While this was not a massive surprise, following multiple leaks from a variety of outlets, its Fantasy impact is nonetheless significant when it comes to plans for Double Gameweek 19. 

Managers who had spent weeks engineering 12 or more Double Gameweek players and eyeing a Bench Boost (along with a hit or two) will be forced back to the drawing board for three days of fraught reshuffling. 

Leeds players, in particular, were very well-backed, on the back of their recent form and favourable-looking ties, with many leading managers advocating a double or even triple-up.

Suffice to say, the collection of Double Gameweek players in contention for Fantasy inclusion, is in flux once again.

Naturally, we will be keeping a watchful eye out for changes, updating our free and Premium Members tools accordingly (as we have with the Season Ticker for Southampton Leeds) and, of course, delivering the usual swathe of insight and opinion from the best Fantasy managerial minds on how to deal with these challenges and which strategies to follow before the 11:00 GMT deadline on Saturday.

        Mane > KDB.

          Cheers! That was the plan until last night. Thought KDB looked incredibly tired.

              I was thinking this too. The man was exhausted. Pep might let him drop back even further and he won't make as many runs into the box (this is coming from a non KDB owner, however..)

                  I was an owner for many weeks until my WC in 16. I then brought him back for FH18 and he's done another 'nearly haul'. He's just doesn't eat up the ground like he did and the players around him blow loads of his assists. And his finishing has been abysmal. I love him as a player but 11.8M for what he's been returning feels too much.

                  I'm not planning on bringing in KDB myself but given your team situation I think Mane to KDB makes the most sense.

                      1 month, 18 days ago

                      Yeah if you already have Salah then I would do Mane>KDB as well. Better long term pick too

                Could do Son to Rashford if you want to take advantage of united's favourable fixtures and form

                  I don't like the idea of losing Son but looking at Uniteds fixtures it doesn't sound too bad actually. Thanks!

              Bench Boosting Martinez, Dier, Bamford, Wood with their 6 fixtures (mci, NEW, shu, BHA, whu, liv) is probably 15-20 points

              versus

              Triple Captaining KDB with CRY/AVL is probably 15-20 points...

              Not much in it, although you couldn't handpick many nicer TC opportunities, whereas GW26 may have more attractive doubles for a better bench boost

              Hmmm....

                BB26 is difficult unless you have FH for BGW29

                  Yeah FH locked in for GW29 alright - want some triple everton vs. West Brom, triple leeds vs. fulham & triple villa vs. sheffield that week...

                  Leaning TC instead of BB this week though - must see if Crellin has had a go at mapping what DGW26 might shape up like

                    Do you think it's possible to create a viable team for 26 despite being unable to use FH in 29? Considering using FH in 19.

                    1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                      1 month, 18 days ago

                      Hard to know - think GW26 doubles will involve FA Cup quarter finalists (i.e. more chance of being the PL big guns) that blank in GW29 so theoretically most folks should find themselves with strong lineups in GW26 by default assuming their teams contain lots of the PL top 10 teams etc?

                      Then things could go in an unexpected direction & some bigger teams may go out of the FA cup giving them more chance of a game in GW29 & less chance of a double in 26 so it may not even be a problem to not have a FH for 29

                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                        Fair enough, makes sense.

                  2. jomikijiq
                    • 5 Years
                    1 month, 18 days ago

                    Yeah, then it makes sense

                    WC25, BB26, FH29 looks great

                    I feel kinda forced to BB now because of no FH left

                      There's a big health warning with 26's doubles too in that they're right after the Euro games R16/R32 games

                      So teams end up going into DGW26 having just played 3 (CL) or 4 (EL) games in the prior 12 days so mad rotation probably on the cards

                    Think SHU looks destined move through in the Cup

                KDB looks jaded though, chance of a rest in one of those fixtures?

                  1 month, 18 days ago

                  Yeah he was dead on his feet from about 65 minutes onwards last night

                  Still should have had a hattrick & 2 assists though & had enough in him to win the pen in the 90th minute if not just bloody take it

                  Don't think Pep likes resting him, but ALWAYS a risk

                  I reckon he could. Foden can fill in with Raz and Bilva or Riyad either side of Jesus.

                  I don’t think you can expect to get anymore from a BB on any other gw coming up.

                  Unless you WC then BB maybe.

                  Sticking with the FH? I might not which is gutting as I loved the FH19 squad but it seems sensible to save 🙁

                    I’m not sure tbh

                    I can just do a FT and get this team out -

                    Martinez
                    Dias - Dier - Dawson
                    KDB - Bruno - Grealish - Foden - Son
                    Kane - Wilson

                    Button - Bamford - Holding - Mitchell

                    Worth it?

                    1. Flair
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      1 month, 18 days ago

                      Have a similar team here and confused haha!

                      Meslier
                      Dias - Cancelo - Dier
                      KDB - Bruno - Son - Grealish
                      Kane - Bamford - Watkins

                      Don't know if I can make that decision for you mate when I'm confused myself. I think I'll save the FH because it may be very difficult to make a strong BB team in 26 without compromising 29.

                  Werner is a lot of money for very little output,
                  I would downgrade him, and upgrade defense,
                  lacks WHM attack

                  1. rnrd
                    • 6 Years

                    I actually really like the Werner pick.
                    He needs to build momentum. With Pulic and Ziyech back, he can play central
                    He has penalties and Pulisic gets a lot of them
                    he had loads of chances and surely has to come good

                4. Captain_Shirokov
                  • 2 Years

                  Still don't like Werner, don't think he'll start both.

                  I like your non-FH team better tbh, I would definitely keep FH

                Is Johnstone, Yedlin, Wilson & Holding a good enough BB?

                  They can give you 20 pts I think so yes

                  Swap yedlin to Coufal or Dawson or similar priced and you're good. Otherwise its pretty likely a yedlin will just get 1pt and 1pt

                Is Son > KDB worth a -4 hit?

                Also worth mentioning that I bought Son for 9.0 meaning I'd lose 0.4 in team value if I get him back

                  Yes of you plan on captaining KDB

                  I’m in the same boat. I have kept faith with Son and felt like it was the correct decision (he also had some golden opportunities in yesterday’s game), but when I look at the next 4 game weeks for KDB, which include 5 games, I’m seriously tempted to do the -4. Loosing the value is the biggest negative as it will mean I won’t get Son back for a while.

                    Yep, precisely this and the fact that his ownership is ridiculously high that he could easily damage my ranking if he hauls, which he has done so many times already this season...

                      When I was in your position a few weeks back & having to choose who to omit out of (KDB, Bruno, Salah, Son) I left out Salah - simply because I wasn't going to be captaining him until at least GW22

                      Son isn't a player I'd entertain selling as his value proposition is just too strong - he's basically a Salah/Mane/KDB/Bruno level but 2.0 cheaper

                      Whereas those other 4 or 5 11.0+ guys - you want to be capping them at least semi-regularly imo

                      *Disclaimer: Selling Salah will NOT go down well here, and could massively backfire/is always risky - but if you're not captaining him for an extended block of gameweeks that's 50% of that risk mitigated straight away

                        It's funny you say this as I originally sold Salah > KDB last week, because of his blank and the upcoming DGW, but this move was eventually reset as I ended up having to use the FH card

                        Certainly a good counter argument in selling Son for KDB. Add to this the unpredictable nature of these games (as I have built up 3 LEE just for this DGW), and it certainly is a hard decision.

                        Thanks for the thoughts!

                  Secretly hoping he’s a doubt, will make it so much easier to get in kdb.

                Can someone please suggest how to use an FT for this team?

                Martinez (4.0)
                Robbo Cresswell Coufal Stones Cancelo
                Fernandes Son Kdb(C) Soucek (4.5)
                Lacazette (Kane 4.3)

                And am I correct to bench Kane?

                  Wouldn't bench Kane

                  Maybe get Salah in somehow and bench him?

                In BGW18 I put Kane on and De Gea on bench and played Martinez and Bamford who are not playing..
                But FPL does not play De Gea and Kane as automatic substitutes.

                Why is that?

                Any sort of updates on Antonio and Randolph? How safe am I to get them in?

                  personally think antonio gets about 150 ish minutes over the 2 games,ill pass on the randolph part.

                I'm ready for this DGW

                Martinez
                Stones, Dias, Chilwell, Coufal
                Soucek, Salah, KdB, Bruno, Grealish

                    Playing a chip? I’ve got a similar bench only raphinha rather than Allioski... still might BB it.

                    This is mad, could easily not play both games/get injured

                    Too risky IMO when you have Bruno, Salah and KDB as options this week

                      Bruno, Salah & Vardy....but I need to punt as OR Is 150,000 and ML is 3rd.

                  Robertson + Holding
                  or
                  Chilwell + Wan-Bissaka
                  ?

                  Steer/DCL/Adams to Areola/Wilson/Antonio (-8)

                  Martinez
                  Cancelo, Dias, Coufal
                  Salah, Bruno, KDB, Grealish, Soucek
                  Wilson, Antonio

                  (Areola, Bamford, Dallas, Dier)

                  Are those moves worth it for a Bench Boost - yes or no?

                    I think so, but would have Watkins over Wilson

                      Could do.

                  Is Son -> Salah + Kane -> Antonio worth a -4?

                  Spurs could do well against SHU but worried about not having Salah

                  1. Couch Potato
                    • 1 Year

                    Just done a similar move myself

                    If you're willing to take the risk that Antonio gets injured

                  • 4 Years
                  1 month, 18 days ago

                  A) Son, DCL to KDB, Antonio (-4)
                  B) DCL to Werner (Keep Son and sacrifice KDB)

                  With B I can get Triple City defence from GW20 and do Werner to Vardy in 21 if needed...

                  1. Couch Potato
                    • 1 Year
                    1 month, 18 days ago

                    A - have too think that DGWs for KBD & Antonio outscore Son and a blank, despite the -4

                    No need for triple City Def btw - too many eggs in the one basket for me

                  1 month, 18 days ago

                  0 FT, 1.9 ITB:

                  Martinez, Johnstone

                  Roberston, Dias, Coufal, Dallas, Mitchell

                  Salah, Fernandes, Son, Raphinha, Anguissa

                  Kane, Antonio, Bamford

                  Worth a -4 to do Raphinha --> Soucek?

                  1. TimoTime
                    • 1 Year
                    1 month, 18 days ago

                    Could be a nice punt as it essentially is only a -2

                8. TimoTime

                  1 month, 18 days ago

                  Planning on holding onto Kane + Bamford as my only SGW players for 19...

                  Worth it?

                  Already planning on doing Adams > Antonio for -4 as I've just done Dallas > Stones already

                  Son, Balbuena & Adams to Grealish, Dias & Antonio for -8?

                  Gives me this BB team

                  Johnstone McCarthy*
                  Dias Justin Coufal Targett Dallas*

                    I'm OK with Dias, though

                  What are people own no villa doing? just looking at the fixtures....

                  City (A)
                  New (H)
                  Bur (A)

                  WH (H)
                  Ars (H)

                  Thinking if I can only get 1 with these fixtures investing in the defence might be best

                    I'd probably get in El Ghazi if he's confirmed fit, as the Newcastle game is great for him.

                    Otherwise Grealish back longer term but not for the double.

                    1. Pompel
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 7 Years
                      1 month, 18 days ago

                      Why not Grealish for the double, surely a great pick, no?

                        Is the Newcastle game confirmed for GW19!

                          Yes, also showing on FPL team

                        Booking risk, and I can't afford him as easily.

                        Also in their current setup, if fit, El G is a better pick (pens and stats and form). Big If on that with Covid though.

                  Do we think KDB gets 180 minutes in the DGW? I'm a bit doubtful

                    150 if not 180 I feel.

                  Is Balbuena to Stones worth -4,bench Dallas and play Stones then? I have Dias btw

                    I'd do that, except Balbuena has 2 tasty fixtures. My back 3 will be Dias, Stones and Coufal.

                        He has? Well do it then!

                          Cheers mate, Balbuena wont play, question is Dallas or Stones (-4)

                            High chance Stones will play both games, so worth the hit in my book.

                  Would you still bench boost with 4 single gw players?

                    That's the position I'm in now having manipulated transfers in previous GWs to get here. And my answer is, no.

                      Im now thinking no. My bench would be Bamford, Raphinha and KWP. If Taylor doesn’t play Bamford will come in. I’ve no playing 2nd keeper so would need a hit if I wanted to bb. Still not sure if it’s worth a bit to do Son to KDB

                      1. Andy_Social
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                        Yeh, I've got 4 players on the bench - McCarthy (Martinez now steps in with no BB), KWP, Bamford and Zouma (DGW). It's prob BB-able but there's too much risk over another unforeseen postponement at 2 hours' notice at this time for me.

                    Depending upon n players and fixtures maybe.

                    Depends on the players

                    If they are Son, Bamford etc. then sure

                    Considering similar. Also considering that it could be extremely silly.

                    I was strongly considering it, but chickened out in the end

                    Swapped out Kane & Son just to get him though, so it might come back to bite me!

                  Triple captain for:

                  A. Salah
                  B. KDB

                      Torn between Salah and KDB on TC.
                      KDB has the better fixtures but Salah has a higher ceiling.. Also some saying KDB could be benched for one game?? With the title race so close do we think Pep would bench KDB? His talisman

                    Would you BB this GW19 team:

                    Martinez* De Gea*
                    Tierney Dallas Coufal* Cancelo* AWB*

                        If you already used your 2nd WC this might be your best shot, if not I would not use

                          Yeah, I did my 2nd WC.. and I know ppl would always play their BB after they WC'ed..

                          If not BB, then who you think shall be on the bench?
                          I cannot decide it myself ..

                            Since you already played your 2nd WC, I would go BB. All of your SGWers have great fixtures
