Which Double Gameweek 19 players are the Scout Network considering?

Double Gameweek 19 is just around the corner and there is a vast array of Fantasy Premier League assets to choose from.

We spoke to the Scout Network to see who they’re thinking of snapping up.

Scout Network: Which players should we target for double Gameweek 19? 2

West Ham team sorted by FPL returns from Jumpers for Goalposts

West Ham have an appealing home Double Gameweek with both Burnley and West Brom visiting the London Stadium. Both opponents have failed to score many goals so far this season and thus these games so could be a perfect chance for a Hammers defender to earn a clean sheet.

Aaron Cresswell seems to be the safest option having played in all games so far and returned points in 53% of them (see above graphic on West Ham). If Michail Antonio is fit then he could also be a great option for goals, with Sebastien Haller leaving the club and no replacement being brought yet there will be a lot of pressure on Antonio to play both.

Finally of the bigger teams, Manchester City also have two home games, although rotation is always a risk, a safe option into clean sheets will be from either Ederson or either of their centre backs John Stones or Ruben Dias. Offensively, Kevin De Bruyne always looks the safest from rotation and thus will likely play both matches, especially as he is the Man City captain.

With Sergio Aguero now in self-isolation, then Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling could share the main forward role, although Bernardo Silva and Phil Foden have both had a stab at it in recent matches while De Bruyne has also occupied a false-nine role more than once.

Kane and Son proving difficult to sell ahead of Double Gameweek 19

Looking ahead to Gameweek 19 and one of the main things I think worth mentioning is the fast turn-around between Blank Gameweek 18 and Bouble Gameweek 19. While the move of the Chelsea and Fulham derby from Friday night to Saturday night does give us FPL managers more time, it’s still a very quick turnaround. So, my first tip is to think of some transfers you’d like to make ahead of Double Gamweek 19, but stay flexible in case circumstances change again. 

Another tip would be, don’t get to tied up in having a full-team of Double Gameweek 19 players with two matches. History has shown us that single Gameweek players can often outscore doublers. If you have Harry Kane or Son Heung-min, for instance, I would seriously consider if it’s worth selling them on for Double Gameweekers or not.

Son and Kane are the top point-scorers in their positions thus far, on 132 and 125 respectively, and they face a Sheffield United side in Double Gameweek 19 that are still really struggling this season, having kept one clean sheet all campaign.

Lastly, my plans have somewhat been thrown-off as I was set-up well for the Gameweek 19 Bench Boost before additional Manchester City and Manchester United fixtures got moved into this round.

This has me reconsidering using the chip now, as I will need to make getting a City asset a priority for Gameweek 19 based on their fixtures. Given their price, I may need to skim money from other players, this may result in making my bench weaker and therefore rendering my bench boost less appealing as a result. So, I’ll revert back to my first tip, and keep my ear to the ground for information, make some notes and keep track of any deadline changes before settling on my Gameweek 19 chip strategy.

Ted Talks FPL

With Haller joining Ajax, West Ham must be confident that 1.9% owned Antonio must be back to full fitness, certainly in the short-term. He looks to be an excellent pick for Double Gameweek 19 where the Hammers play Burnley and West Brom, both at home.

If you’re in need of a budget enabler and have a spare Manchester City spot, why not opt for 1.8% owned Ilkay Gundogan. He’s started the last four and has three goals in that time. He looks to be assured of a regular place in the starting eleven, playing in the double pivot alongside Rodri. Out of the two, he’s the one who likes to get in to the box. He has 10 shots, four of them big chances, in the last six, with eight chances created to boot. A Double Gameweek of Crystal Palace and Aston Villa is an appealing prospect.

2.3% owned Hakim Ziyech returned from injury in the loss to Manchester City in Gameweek 17 and pulled the strings in Chelsea’s 4-0 win against Morecambe in the FA Cup. If Chelsea are going to get back in their stride, he will have to be instrumental in that task. Chelsea travel to Fulham and Leicester in the Double Gameweek.

Ted Talks FPL

FPL Family

Double Gameweek 19 is the biggest gameweek of the season so far for us as FPL managers. There is so much chatter in the FPL community about Triple Captains, Bench Boosts, Wildcards and Free Hits that it is difficult sometimes to assess what is the best thing.

Couple this with a climate of change, games being moved or postponed with short notice, and we need to ensure that we are making our decisions as late as possible to ensure that we are making them with the most up to date news possible to protect our teams as best we can.

Loading up on Double Gameweek 19 teams feels like a good idea, however there are a number of single gameweek players, the likes of Kane, Son, Alexandre Lacazette and Bukayo Saka, who have excellent single Gameweek fixtures and shouldn’t be over looked.

Liverpool will be an interesting team for this week. On paper they have two nice fixtures, both at home where Liverpool have a fantastic unbeaten record. However their recent form in the Premier League has been disappointing with a 1-0 loss to Southampton and draws with Newcastle and West Brom in their last three matches. In those three matches Mohamed Salah has blanked every time, thus with many managers considering Triple Captaining him in Double Gameweek 19 will perhaps rightly begin to question whether it is the right moment to deploy that chip.

Even with Salah’s last three disappointing returns I will still hold him through this week as it seems counterintuitive to remove a player with a set of double fixtures. Salah has also performed well against the other big-six sides this season scoring seven against Spurs, nine against Man City and five against Arsenal. In the reverse fixture against Fulham, Salah scored and registered one bonus for an eight-point score. I suspect we’ll see a return to form for Salah in Double Gameweek 19 as many FPL managers look to remove the Egyptian King in favour of other premium assets.

What’s happening in the Scout Network?

Scout Network: Thinking ahead to the blank and double Gameweek in 18 and 19

This week will see the launch of the new Scout Network podcast Scout The Gameweek hosted by Sam from the FPL Family. This week Sam will be joined by Ted Talks FPL to discuss Gameweek 19 and take a look back on blank Gameweek 18.

Ted Talks FPL

At the start of the new year, Ted Talks FPL went through a re-branding, designing a new logo that has the ability to seemlessly integrate with his new charts & animations. All of Ted’s social headers were also updated with an alternative style, also intended for YouTube video thumbnails.

Between Christmas and New Year, Ted also appeared on Scoutcast Matchday with Gianni, Rich and Seb. Last week Ted produced a mega thread, answering the key questions regarding Gameweek 18.

This week Nymfria joined Brandon and Josh from Always Cheating for a chat on navigating the Blank Gameweek 18 and Double Gameweek 19

El Statto

El Statto’s first article of 2020 was a great success. He looked at the Gameweek 18 fixtures and tried to highlight the stand out picks from each game with the focus on those managers playing the Free Hit team and who are building their squad from scratch.

    What's the disadvantage, if any, to playing WC GW25 and using BB GW26 ?

    Thanks.

    1. Christophe Savage
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Long time to carry a heavy bench for the remainder of the season .

    2. BenDavies
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      That tactic makes BGW29 very tough considering the teams that have a DGW in 26 don't play in 29. So your BGW team will be very bare.

    Kane + DCL + Raphinha to:
    A- Vardy + Antonio + Foden
    B- Vardy + Antonio + Mount
    B- Watkins + Antonio + KDB

    Cheers

      A for me

    2. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      A for sure out of those

      Is that for a -4 or -8?

    3. Scholes Out Forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      A looks the best, but no KDB is scary

    • 6 Years

    This makes sense doesnt it?
    I think...

    Son, Kane > Salah, Vardy

    Gives me front 8 of

    KDB, Bruno, Salah, Grealish, ESR
    Vardy, Bamford, Antonio

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Looks good

    2. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      For a hit?

      It could work but very risky imo. Salah is becoming hit and miss on returns and Vardy just back. We know Kane and Son have the quality to haul .....

      Could def work though

      1. KLOPPS AND ROBBERS... the s…
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        -4
        If it was with a sub par striker e.g. Wilson I probably wouldn't but think Vardy is a risk worth taking

  4. Gudjohnsen
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    A. Watkins, Cresswell
    B. Antonio, Zouma

    Liverpool failed to score in last three PL games and sturggled against villa kids in first 45 mins

    Do you think one could get away with no Salah or Mane, especially if not captain them?

    1. KLOPPS AND ROBBERS... the s…
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      I'd be scared going Salahless
      See above, Son could make way for him

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Same problem for me below, need a hit to get him but it’s still tempting, problem is it also means losing Lacazette and Rashford

      I think I will go without

    3. Weeb Kakashi
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      I am going without Salah.
      Have Bruno KDB and Sterling. Son too.

    4. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      I’m going with zero Liverpool

  6. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Do you think I can get away with a hold and bench boost here?

    Areola / flappyanski
    Stones,Cancelo,coufal,holding,Maguire
    Bruno, kdb, souceck, rash, Smith-rowe
    Kane, laca, bam

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Yeah - nice squad that but hold out for news on Flappy

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Yeah, he was my only concern, let’s see

        1. NateDogsCats
            1 month, 16 days ago

            He was pictured in training 5 days ago so he should definitely be fine

      2. BenDavies
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        id bench boost that team, yes

      3. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        I'd say yes mate

    2. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Trying to avoid taking hits to ditch premium players just because of a DGW. Are either of these options any good?!

      A) Raphinha, KWP, Adams > Foden, Stones, Brewster/ Davis (-8) - Play 4-5-1:

      Martinez (x2)
      Robbo (x2), Dias (x2), Stones (x2), Coufal (x2)
      Salah (x2), Bruno (x2), Son, Soucek (x2), Foden (x2)
      Kane
      (Forster) (Bamford, Dallas, Brewster)

      B) Same as above but with an additional -4 (total -12) to do Forster > Johnstone/ Areola and play BB

      The way I see it, Foden + Stones should be able to outscore Raph, KWP + Adams by over 8pts over two matches.
      The temptation with B) is that for the sake of another 4pts I am unlocking a minimum of 10 points from my bench.....

      Keen to hear your thoughts!
      Cheers

    3. Shark Team
      • 3 Years

      3. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        A for this week.

        Areola potentially useful for future doubles though

      4. philosopherking
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        A

    4. FFS Ultras are for Kinnear

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Yes

        Indeedy

    5. J to the T
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Worth a -8 for Areola Soucek and Antonio in for Forster Romeu and DCL to hit bench boost?

      Would have 12 DGWers plus Dallas Son Bamford

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        I'd say yes

    6. wattalowz
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Chances RJames starts both DGW19 games?

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        50/50 - Azpi about

        1. wattalowz

          Though so cheers

        1. wattalowz
          • 3 Years

          Yep

        2. Boly Would
          • 4 Years

          Back training yesterday I believe...

      3. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        75% imo. I think unless he is feeling the injury he'll play both. They can't afford to drop him for Azpi.

    7. Weeb Kakashi
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      On a -4. FH intact.

      Areola
      Cancelo Cresswell AWB
      KDB(C) Sterling Bruno Son
      Wilson Bamford Antonio

      9 Dgwers with Bamford and Son.

      G2G??

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Looks good

      2. Apwilkin
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Looks good to me.

      3. Marcin the Pole
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        No Liverpool would scare me.

    8. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Areola or Johnstone for the Double?

      1. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Prefer Areola now.

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Feels sensible, 2 home games too albeit against stronger opposition.
          Although good chance to rack up some save points

      2. Weeb Kakashi
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Areola

      3. BenDavies
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        johnstone

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Thanks all

        I'm torn tbh

        Fixtures say Johnstone this week but Areola good to have for later doubles also

      5. Deulofail
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        My Johnstone and another's Areola

    9. Pepeye

      Sterling grabbed the ball, asked KDB if he could take Pen & KDB said "Okay"

      1. PogBruno
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Fook him

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        And did you see the state of Sterling before the pen - looked all wild-eyed and out of it... was a very weird situation

      3. Brosstan

        • 11 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Kev really needs to start pulling rank more on greedy fools like Sterling and Mahrez

        Mahrez was trying to get taking the Indirect Free Kick in the box in the first half but KDB rightly told him to back off, his conscious might have been at him in saying no twice in one game

        Too nice for his own good

    10. All about the galacticos
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Coufal owners not worried he may be rested? There two days between GW15 & GW16 (rested)

      1. Apwilkin
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 16 days ago

        He was rested against Southampton wasn’t he? My guess is he would play. Maybe subbed off around 60 in one of the game.

        1. All about the galacticos
          • 6 Years

          *not worried enough to be considering a transfer

        1 month, 16 days ago

        Well he's the least of my worries right now.

        I'm just trying to figure out if I want to go without Salah or not.

        yes

      2. Do I Not Like Orange
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        I'm going chipless this GW. Neither KDB nor Salah have given me any confidence in trusting them with a chip, and Bruno could get a yellow vs Pool.

        if you ever take a -16 in any scenario you should just give up FPL

          Agreed. I have never taken more than a -8 in my entire FPL career.

        A decent BB only gets you 20-25 points. Not worth a -16.

      Which option here:

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

      West Ham manager David Moyes is a huge fan of Mipo Odubeko - the former Man United starlet they snapped up little over 12-months ago. He is set to make his Premier League debut this weekend and could be the long-term answer up-front for The Hammers, they rate him that highly.

      Do you think Soucek-4 outscores Holding/Rodrigo in 19?

        No need to bring him for a hit imo

      2. Apwilkin
        • 1 Year

        Not for a hit.

        I think he could do but I would only do it if you want him long term.

    16. wagner is king

      is stones woth -4 or will he only play one game ?
      have holding on bench with good fixture but if stones gonna play 2 might be worth it as sets me up nicely long term?

      1. tm370
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        I wouldnt hit him in - I think the moment to do it was probably this week. Definitely a good short term play but who knows when Laporte or Ake might come back and disrupt his starts.

      • KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        -8 hit:
        DCL to Antonio
        Mitchell to Coufal
        Steer to Areola

        Gets me this:

        Areola
        Cancelo | Stones | Coufal | Lowton
        KdB | Bruno | Grealish | Soucek
        Antonio | Kane*

        McCarthy* | Son* | Bamford* | Dallas*

        0ITB
        *Non DGW

        Sound good for a BB?

        Other alternative is to get Salah & Brewster for Son & DCL and play TC.....though think I’m favouring the former.

        Thoughts?

        1. BenDavies
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          That is a good BB, imo, conflicted on whether it's worth a -8 though, especially with 1 defender and a goalkeeper coming in. Also not sure whether Antonio plays all the minutes in the DGW. Areola is also a dodgy pick, imo.

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            I know what you mean by the hit, but I’m thinking in terms of effectively getting 6 games for the hit (if they all play twice).

            I think Fulham have looked great recently to the contrary, tough opponents in the double but home games and an opportunity to rack up saves

        2. Deulofail
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          A lot of points to spend on a BB. I don't see much benefit to it tbh

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            8 doesn’t feel too bad to me

        3. The 12th Man
          • 7 Years

          Like it. Sets your bench up to just in case there's further postponements.

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years

          Why BB on a single GW bench? Wildcard before thenext double to gain full returns

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Because quite often many of the SGW outscore the DGW players. Given Leeds and Spurs have a great fixture this seems like a good opportunity to try to get that optimum selection

        5. philosopherking
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          1st 2 moves look good, but Areola might not even repay the hit. Rest of the bench looks good so might as well go ahead with the BB. You could also consider Johnstone.

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Yes, thanks. I think Areola will have a better opportunity of save points

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

          I'm not sure. The transfers are good but you've got 5 single gameweekers there and a Fulham goalie. And Lowton. I can't see a clean sheet from either goalie. I would save BB

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Hmm true, would you sell Son for Salah and go the TC route?

            Worth mentioning though to get Salah it’s still a -4, and although the -8 BB doesn’t have Salah it does have Son

        Grealish to Foden for a hit?? No City players...

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

          Why would you get rid of Grealish... He also has a double.

        2. Maddamotha
          • 4 Years

          No

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          That's a no from me - now with Grealish's double

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

          A hit is mad imo. I doubt Foden plays the next 3 - Grealish could get booked and suspended but I wouldn't hit on that prospect.

          1. jam
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            That's a no then. Yeah the YC situation is bothering me and no City.
            Hmm.
            Cheers all for calming my itchy finger.

        1. BenDavies
          • 8 Years

          nothing immediate but if the covid cases increase then city vs villa may be called off. very unlikely now, though.

        Was all geared up for a BB from my WC16... But here we are. 1 FT, 0 ITB. Still have TC and BB.

        Johnston (Mcarthy)
        Mee-Castagne-Robbo-Cougar (Dallas)
        Son-Bruno-Salah-Soucek (Anguissa)
        Kane-Bamford (Adams)

        1- Save my chips, and save my transfer.
        2- TC Salah?
        3- BB
        4- Castagne to stones and Adams to Antonio for -4

        Hey guys, not really got a clue what to do here approaching the DGW, just looking for ideas. (Asterisked are the DGW’ers)

        Martinez*
        Robertson* - Dias* - Dallas
        Raphinha - Salah* - KDB* - Bruno* - Son
        Bamford - Wilson*
        __________________________________
        Forster: Lindelof, Holding, Brewster

        1FT, 0.1 ITB.

        Considering anything up to a -12, so was thinking something like:

        Lindelof + Salah + Brewster > Cancelo/Coufal + Soucek + Vardy

        But honestly not got a clue anymore, any wisdom you can throw my way would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys.

        1. Apwilkin
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 16 days ago

          A -12 where you lose Salah seems like a recipe for tears on a DGW (or any weeK). Not sure you need any transfers to be honest. Maybe just lindelof to coufal and raphinha to soucek.

          1. Here's Tom with the We…
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Lindelof and Raphina to Cresswell and Soucek?

            1. UNDERWORLD7
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 16 days ago

              Cheers bud! Yeah that’s a fair shout, not sure I can do cresswell but would you those moves with coufal instead of cresswell if that’s possible?

          2. UNDERWORLD7
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Yeah very true, I don’t like losing Salah at all. Good call those man cheers

        2. Deulofail
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          So for the DGW XI:

          A) Dallas + Raphinha + Salah
          B) Cancelo + Soucek + Vardy (-8)

          My answer: Hmmm instainct was A, but it's closer than I thought, actually. I think you can do better, but otherwise, I'd lean towards B since your squad will be improved for the future too.

          1. UNDERWORLD7
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Cheers matey, there is the fear of losing Salah I guess, but it would build my squad for the better in the future like you say.
