‘Enjoy the ride, adapt and stop planning’ – FPL’s reigning India winner says to focus on the short-term

The Double Gameweeks are here.

But it hasn’t been a smooth ride. Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers have had so many unexpected detours (a lot of off-roading) on the way, but battered, bruised and with a lot of dents, we’re finally here.

Just know that you are not the only ones facing these twists and turns. It won’t be the last time unexpected rescheduling happens either.

FPL managers all over the globe have been meandering their way through these unexpected times and you’ve just got to enjoy the ride and adapt. It’s the only option you have really.

So what do I intend to do differently? First off, stop planning. Be more short-sighted. Normally, when making moves, I look at the next five to six Gameweeks.

Instead, I am going to play for the points available and have a more short-term approach when planning my moves.

This means I’ll likely look at the next three Gameweeks when making my moves and no more than that.

Why? We could literally have unexpected cancellations and changes (Double Gameweeks) at any time. So planning mid-term doesn’t have much value in my opinion.

Secondly, and I have said this multiple times this season, I’m all for wanting to chase price rises, but honestly, I can’t say it enough, this is the season to delay your transfers as far as possible.

The fantasy landscape is changing daily and new bits of information are appearing on a daily basis, which might drastically affect your transfer strategy.

You might think that your transfers might not be affordable the next day, but when you look closer, there is always another way.

Has the recent Double Gameweek news for Aston Villa and Newcastle and the lack of a double for Leeds United and Southampton changed my plans?

FPL Transfer Traps Gameweek 6 1

I currently own only Patrick Bamford (£6.6m) from the two teams and before Blank Gameweek 18, I sold Jack Grealish (£7.7m) and Che Adams (£6.0m).

I had heard murmurs of the Leeds vs Southampton game being called off and I just don’t trust the fitness of Villa’s players and the lure of two premium Manchester big hitters was too much for me.

It was a gamble and it won’t be the last time I’ll need to roll the dice this season.

It just seems like a season of difficult decisions given the sheer number of consistent big hitters but it is what it is.

Just a small note on Aston Villa, the nature of the COVID-19 outbreak is unknown at the time of writing and we don’t necessarily know how the squad has been affected.

It is a very thin squad that is very reliant on 10 to 14 players and if the majority of the first team squad is affected, I don’t know how much I’d trust them.

Keeping this in mind, their players come into the don’t buy/ don’t sell category for me until we know more about them.

Auto Draft 1

Speaking of difficult decisions, one big decision that FPL managers will likely be making this season is whether to sell Son Heung-min (£9.8m) or Harry Kane (£11.1m) for a premium Double Gameweek asset in Gameweek 19.

The one thing I’ll say is if you’re doing it to get in a premium big hitter like Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) or Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m) who are genuine captaincy options, then it makes sense to me.

If not, it becomes a very difficult decision (one that might not necessarily be the right one) given their fixture in Gameweek 19.

Then it comes down to gut and the kind of FPL manager you are.

If I was to hold one of Son or Kane, at the moment I’d lean towards holding Son primarily because of the price difference.

I see a lot of people selling their Arsenal and Leeds United assets for Double Gameweek players.

It is important to not have the blinkers on for the doubles because both of these teams in addition to Spurs have very good games in Gameweek 19 and it might not be the smartest thing to sell them just to buy additional minutes in the Double Gameweek.

You need to look at the next couple of Gameweeks while making these decisions and then make the call.

A few things I have noticed in the last few weeks is that players like Son, Bruno Fernandes (£11.3m) and KDB have looked very tired in the last 30 minutes of games and I feel like in comparison, Liverpool and Chelsea both having some time off will play into their hands.

I’m personally expecting an upturn in performances for both of these teams in the coming weeks.

Having some time on the training ground with the full team without playing games can be underestimated and I think that will show.

It is worth noting Chelsea have all their players fit now including their full-backs and it’s easy to forget that when they, along with Hakim Ziyech (£8.1m) were fit, Chelsea were creating chances for fun.

They have a decent looking Double Gameweek (both Leicester and Fulham are in the worst five teams for big chances conceded at home this season) and I quite like their fixtures in the mid-term as well.

There are some good picks in that team both in attack and in defence should you fancy it.

Some of you are wondering about whether you should Bench Boost or not.

In my opinion if you have players from the likes of Leeds who have a good Gameweek 19 fixture, I’d still use the chip and play the Bench Boost.

The case for you to Bench Boost is even stronger, especially if you have used your Free Hit chip in Gameweek 18.

I say that is the case because if you wildcard in Gameweek 25 for the Double Gameweek in 26, your bench spots will need to be likely focused on Blank Gameweek 29 and that is something to consider while you’re making your decision.

Otherwise, one of the prime advantages of having used the Bench Boost chip is so that it’s out of the way and you can focus funds on your starting 11 (plus two bench spots) rather than spreading them over 15 players.

It is very difficult to give an answer with regards to this conundrum because it is very team dependant but generally when it comes to using your chips, there will be many more mini Double Gameweeks in play the way the season is going, so there are going to be more opportunities than you think for chip deployment.

I intentionally decide to just talk a little bit of macro-philosophy with this article ahead of the Double Gameweek but all of you are aware of the numbers and the good picks so I thought it might be worthwhile to outline a few things that might not have caught your attention.

I’ve been making steady progress with my season after a terrible start.

Despite having games called off for my Manchester City and Spurs assets and despite not deploying my Free Hit chip in Gameweek 18, I’ve climbed from a 3.1 million Overall Rank (OR) in Gameweek 12 to a 1.54 million OR at present.

I was very happy to get a 300,000 sized green arrow in Gameweek 18 despite taking a hit, owning nine players and not deploying the Free Hit chip which tells you that quality matters over quantity.

If the odds are stacked against you in a particular Gameweek in terms of numbers of players, it still isn’t the end of the world because if you have the right players, you could still climb up the table.

Also, it is worth mentioning that Zophar & I had the pleasure of interviewing the creator of LiveFPL.net recently and it was a pleasure getting to chat with Ragabolly.

He’s a PHD in quantum physics and still claims to not be a genius.

He’s a very humble guy and it’s an interview worth watching if you haven’t already. You can see it here.

We also did our standard podcast of The FPL Wire where we talk about Double Gameweek 19 in depth which you will find below. Thanks for reading and good luck this Gameweek!

      Lowton, Taylor and Son -> Dias, Stones and Foden for - 8?

      Thank you!

      1. king cole
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Could do the first 2, save the son to foden. Foden minutes could be limited this week.

      2. Boxwoods
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        3 months, 6 days ago

        Yeah, maybe. But you need a plan to get Son back pronto.

        Keep son

    • Siva Mohan
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      would you bring in Stones for a HIT and bench Dallas?

      1. UNDERWORLD7
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        I did exactly that

        1. Siva Mohan
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          have Dias already .. worth the HIT?

          1. UNDERWORLD7
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 6 days ago

            Yep I’ve doubled up with Dias myself. Was either Coufal or Stones, went with Stones. I did Lindelof & Raphinha to Stones and Soucek, so worth the hit I’d say

            1. Siva Mohan
              • 8 Years
              3 months, 6 days ago

              cheers UW

            • 1 Year
            3 months, 6 days ago

            No need to capitalise HIT, yes it’s worth it but Dallas goal could burn you

            1. Siva Mohan
              • 8 Years
              3 months, 6 days ago

              I expect a CS from Dallas .. goal would burn me

            2. evilfish
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 6 days ago

              That's a good POINT. Dallas is very attacking with a great fixture against Brighton.

      2. Quan MisTaka
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        yes

    • Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Just realised DDG is only 0.2 more than Martinez... worth bringing him in instead?

      1. Quan MisTaka
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        yeah its a shout for those without money tied uo

      2. Cloudeu
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Not his resale value tho

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 6 days ago

          Yeah I know but I own neither

    • Marcus_20126
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Option 1: Stones + Antonio (DGW) replacing Reguilon and McGoldrick (SGW) for -8

        Or

        Option 2: Justin + Foden (DGW) replacing Reguilon and March (SGW) for -8

        Option 3: Do nothing! Is -8 worth it?

        Any recommendations?

        1. Quan MisTaka

        Thoughts on this FH team?

        Johnstone
        Stones Cancelo Coufal Ogbonna
        KDB Salah Mane Ziyech
        Vardy Antonio

        Fodder

          Personally I think Cancelo sits out one of the two

      • Uncle Gamst
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        I was pretty set on the following team; 8DGWers plus Son, Kane and Bamford, who have one game.

        Pope*
        Coufal*, Stones*, Dias*
        KdB*(C), Fernandes*, Son, Soucek*
        Kane, Wilson*, Bamford
        Sanchez, Dier, Taylor*, Bissouma

        a) Is it worth doing Kane & Son > Salah & Antonio (-4) for 10 DGWers. Spurs play Sheffield and Antonio has only just come back from injury?
        b) Dier & Taylor > Targett & Justin who have DGW, and then BB for -4?
        c) Taylor > Targett to avoid price drop and play Targett v Burnley in GW20

        Many thanks

            Thanks, decisions, decisions! Liverpool and Spurs play each other in GW20 and then both have mixture of tough and easy games after that.

            Burnley & Spurs have some tricky games coming up. Justin/Targett are more attacking players with reasonable fixtures. They are also at a similar price point, where they can easily be replaced.

        A) KDB
        B) Salah
        C) Vardy

        Activate triple cap?

        1) Yes

        Keen on a city defender but TAA the only way, don't mind losing him but seems a bit silly on a double for a hit. Thoughts appreciated.

        McCarthy
        TAA* Coufal* Dallas

        A. DCL > Watkins for a -4 I know that we don't know about Villa but he is the only recognized Striker they have left on the team

        B. Son & DCL > Vardy & Barnes for a -8 but gives me 11 DGWers

        Still flip flopping between giving the C to KDB or Salah

            Do you not think I wouldn't have put Antonio as the transfer option if I didn't already have him?

            These are my two options to choose from

              Not ready for BB, will WC and BB later. TC is always gonna be in a DGW, I would rather take my chances with the opportunity in hand rather than wait for the *very* unknown future in this crazy season.

        DDG**; Martinez**
        Dias**; Stones**; Coufal**; Dier; Holding
        KDB**; Bruno**; Son; Grealish**; Soucek**
        Kane; Wilson**; Bamford

        10 players with doubles. The five without all have decent fixtures. Bench boost right? And captain KDB?

        1. Bojam
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          Worry not having Salah but to get him in would mean either losing Kane & Son (-4) or losing one and doing a -8 to free up funds.

          Have 1 FT and 0.1ITB. What would you do?

          1. Quan MisTaka
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 6 days ago

            Son and Kane to Salah and Antonio is popular. I think BB is a good idea for you regardless

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              3 months, 6 days ago

              I did.
              Grealish, Kane to Salah, Antonio

              1. Bojam
                • 3 Years
                3 months, 6 days ago

                Nice moves. I'm 0.5m off making that move. 0.3m off Salah & Watkins.

                Could bring in Mane instead of Salah though. Thoughts on that?

            2. Bojam
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 6 days ago

              Cheers mate! Considering Salah has Utd in one of the two fixtures, is he worth getting rid of both Kane & Son (who play SHU)?
              Antonio just back from injury so might not play full 180 mins. Watkins an alternative but he may be one of the Covid affected players and even if not, who knows how Villa will fare.

      • LABILLETHEGOAT
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        would you do son > kdb for a hit? 40pts behind league leader who has kdb

        1. EIE
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          In the same boat and considering going all in on Sterling for differential value. KDB has been looking a bit tired recently and only one home league goal all season...

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

            you might have a point

            1. Sloane426
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 6 days ago

              Definitely Sterling captain in your spot

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

          U need a differential and a prayer lol

        3. Bojam
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          40 points isn't much at this stage. You can easily claw that back. Don't worry who they have / don't have, just get in the best players you can. Half a season left to play! GL.

      • EIE
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Which scores more this week?

        Or...

        B: Sterling (c) and Vardy

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          A probably

      • MessiGOAT
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Vardy and Rashford
        Or

        ? Ta

        1. EIE
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          Probably first one, just because Martial could take Cavani's spot for Fulham if he's fit

          1. MessiGOAT
            • 8 Years
