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.

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.

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.

    I have exactly 0.2m ITB for Adams > Antonio.

    Worth doing it tonight just in case? If he goes up I have to take hits or else play Bamford.

    1. BeWater
        3 months, 2 days ago

        I did this last night.

      • Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Probably worth it, yes.

        It's not like Adams is a particularly great option longer term anyway!

      • PogBruno
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        I will base the decision on whoever has better fixtures post gw19 between Adams and Antonio

      • Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Yeah do it - huge misfortune were Antonio to get injured in training tomorrow

      • Boly Would
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        I would

      • No Salah
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        I think yes.

        1. Here's Tom with the We…
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          I’d just play Bamford anyway.

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            This is something that's actually interesting. I've considered saving my FT this week haha.

            1. Here's Tom with the We…
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 2 days ago

              I think I might save too! Ha

              It’s either JWP to Foden or Gundo, or just play Bamford.

              1. Camzy
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years
                3 months, 2 days ago

                Ah in your shoes I would 100% do JWP > Foden.

                But I have no leeway since I intend to keep my power 5 midfield and Antonio is a much less attractive pick than Foden or Gundo.

          2. NateDogsCats
              3 months, 2 days ago

              I don't think it's a bad option at all, Brighton will have a go at Leeds and he'll get a few chances, I could easily see him being one of the players with single games that will outscore a good few of those with doubles

        2. The Knights Template
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          I am 0.1m off being able to do this unfortunately so it looks like it's Shitkins for me. You don't want that.

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            Or I play SGW Bamford.

      • PogBruno
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        What would you do ?

        A) Start Wood - WHU a, LIV a
        B) Wood ➡ Watkins (-4) -> who has nice fixtures post GW19
        C) Start Tierney (NEW h) and bench Wood

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

          I think C actually - don't rate Wood

        2. Boly Would
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Probably C

        3. PogBruno
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Thanks guyz

        4. John Nerdelbaum
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          C and move Wood on asap

      • Boly Would
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Currently on this (not using BB):
        Martinez
        Dias AWB Coufal
        KDB Bruno Soucek Son*
        Martial Kane* Bamford*

        Steer; Saka* Bednarek* Mitchell*

        Is it worth a -8 to do this and use BB;
        Martial + Steer + Mitchell > Antonio + Johnstone + Chilwell?

        GK/Def combo could be any up to 10.8...

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

          Is Martial def out?

          1. Boly Would
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            Hardly heard anything either way so thought maybe best to just get rid. Antonio as a replacement carries his own risk, however.

        Raphinha to Grealish or Rash?

        1. Team Bobcat
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          What has Rap done wrong? Why did you but him?

          Sureky because you wanted to play him this week

          If no other issues what so ever then could consider swapping for anyone but Grealish as we dont know what villa players have covid.

          Who are your other mids?

            Bruno KDB Soucek Son Raph
            Laca Kane Bam

            Planning:
            Raph to Rash
            Kane to Cav
            Laca to Antonio

              For a -8

                • 10 Years
                3 months, 2 days ago

                I hate to do this... I dont think that's worth -8

                Kane vs sheff... do you think cavani will top him by 4?

                I love the Antonio pic

                Bb?

                1. ZLATAN'S PONYTAIL
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  3 months, 2 days ago

                  That probably is sane advice 🙂
                  My issues with Kane vs Sheff are: Sheff defending better. Not losing by boat loads. Add Mou to that equation and it feels even worse.

                  Not bb

                  1. kennethrhcp
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 10 Years
                    3 months, 2 days ago

                    All true aswell... maybe a -4. Keep Ralph on bench and play bam?

                    I'm guessing bam was gonna lose out in the -8?

                    1. ZLATAN'S PONYTAIL
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 5 Years
                      3 months, 2 days ago

                      Bam would end up on the bench as part of the -8. Thanks. Much to contemplate.

                      Antonio likely coming in for Laca though

            Was just going to ask the same! His flag has been removed yet he's -104 already. Must be people trying to find money to fund KDB.

              I so hope he does too as it will enable Kane > Vardy & Son > KDB

            No reply last page (and I was replying to others, honest!)

            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

              I like A, no point in taking a hit for Johnstone/Areola

                Cheers

                Wouldn't you view it thought that you are spending 4 points on:
                Areola/ Johnstone's points (2 matches)
                Bamford vs BHA
                Dallas vs BHA
                Brewster's 1 pointer

                Is that total above not worth 4 points?

                  Looking at it that way - maybe ..

              Go BB. I will probably do a-12 to set up my team for DGW19 and GW20-

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

                Haha thanks mate - the -12 scares me even though I can see it easily being repaid due to the DGW players and bench.

                I've never taken more than a -8!

              2. Team Bobcat
                • 4 Years
                3 months, 2 days ago

                (-8) is wildcard territory (-12) is team fail which shouldn't happen unless returning from a long absence.

                Must ask how have you allowed your team reached this state. Find out why and then dont ever repeat.

            3. Team Bobcat
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 2 days ago

              I think any move that involves even ila (-4) is a big no no for me

                Respectfully disagree

                I always take well-planned hits and they very often pay off.

                I think you can easily miss out on lots of upside by avoiding all hits

              Dier to Cresswell for a hit.

              Yes or no?

                  Yeah, Cresswell's fixtures and attacking form are hard to ignore

                Worth a -4?

                McCarthy, DCL > Ederson, Antonio.
                I have no other City.

                  Don't bother with Ederson for a hit

                    But other City defs are ok for a hit?

                  I'd do it. Ederson should get atleast 1 cs and that should pay back the hit.

                Would you prefer Lowton (whu, liv) or Dallas(BRI) on bench boost?

                One needs to make way for a City defender

                Is a minus twelve (Walker-Peters to Stones, Raphinha to Foden, Calvert-Lewin to Antonio and Button to Mendy) worth it to give me this bench boost team? (McCarthy, Bamford, Son have singles):

                McCarthy, Mendy
                Taylor, Chilwell, Stones, Dias, Cresswell
                Salah, Bruno, Son, Soucek, Foden
                Antonio, Bamford, Firmino

                Which option here:

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

                3 months, 2 days ago

                Bench now looks like this:

                McCarthy, Bamford, Adams, Strujik

                All single gameweekers makes me think I might have to forget the BB now, but then again benching Bamford vs Brighton seems like quite a risk...

                Given the fixture changes, I'm considering switching from BB to KDB (TC) but would need to take a hit. What about Robbo & Son > Coufal & KDB? Or should I downgrade Kane to someone like Wood?

                Johnstone
                Robbo - Justin - Dallas - Stones
                Salah - Bruno - Soucek - Raphinha

                i am afraid only by not getting his points in gw19.
                My only way to get him is do -4 and lose Kane.

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

                1- Save chips and roll FT
                2- TC - probably Salah
                3- BB and Castagne to stones and Adams to Antonio for -4

                Shaw to Coufal for a -4 worth it? Or pray Luke starts both which I fear not?

                Given the fixture changes, I'm considering switching from BB to KDB (TC) but would need to take a -4 hit. No money ITB
                A - Robbo & Son > Coufal & KDBB - Son & Kane > KDB & AntonioC - Other suggestion?

                Johnstone
                Robbo - Justin - Dallas - Stones
                Salah - Bruno - Soucek - Son - Raphinha
                Kane 

                McCarthy - Bamford - Adams - Balbuena

                  I’m thinking some similar moves. Not worried about KDB getting rested at all? I worry about losing Robbo myself. I know they have a couple tough fixtures but the way he is playing youve got to expect some goals/assists sometime soon here..

                Hello all, fresh from a disastrous FH involving a last minute 'Sterling' inclusion. Best moves here?

                Johnstone Button
                Cancelo Stones Dallas Balbuena 3.8
                Salah KDB Son Bruno Soucek
                Kane Bamford Brewster

                A) Kane+Balbuena to Vardy+Cresswell (-4) (exact cash)
                B) Balbuena to Coufal
                C) Son to Rashford
                D) A+C (-8)
                Anything else?

                Leaning strongly towards A. Appreciate your thoughts.

                    Really could! I'm so 50/50 on the call

                Leeds likely to have a DGW in the near future? Don't wanna sell an asset only to find out they have a double the next week lol

                  Agreed. Seems like a lot of scrambling/hits to move players out that we will want back in a week... I am guilty of the scrambling haha
