‘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!

    Who should I ship out?

    Mane/El Ghazi -> KDB/Foden
    Or
    Mane/Adams -> KDB/Antonio

    Adams has been passed fit.
    Antonio played one cup game and may not be fit.
    Foden is in form but may not play 2 games
    El Ghazi has a dGW and pens but tough games and form.

    1. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      mane/adams

  3. PrestigeWorldwidewidewide..…

    A. DCL** + Dallas* > Antonio + Zouma (-4)
    C. DCL** + Podence** > Antonio + Soucek (-4)
    D. Podence** > Soucek (Free)
    E. DCL** > Antonio (Free)

    *Single GW
    **Injured

    I wish we had more news on DCL's injury time frame, I would just hold him if he was coming back soon.

    Worth doing Bruno to Salah for -4? Worried Bruno is going off the boil

    1. HuttonDressedasLahm
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Will you captain Salah?

      1. Freddiemac123
        8 months, 3 days ago

        Prob not. Haven’t decided yet but thinking of KDB captain

    2. estheblessed
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Crazy talk. Bruno will keep producing. He might need a game off however it would be stupid to get rid.

      1. Freddiemac123
        8 months, 3 days ago

        Ok cheers. Will keep

  5. HuttonDressedasLahm

    2. Tommy J
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

  6. V-2 Schneiderlin
    • 11 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    is this FH team gtg? any suggestions..

    Johnstone
    AWB, Coufal, Cancelo
    Salah, Soucek, Fernandes, KDB (c), Foden
    Antonio, Vardy

  7. PrestigeWorldwidewidewide..…
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    Had an option B but removed it...

    1. HuttonDressedasLahm
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      A is better 🙂

    2. Thinkering like a Boss
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Just go with A no doubt

    3. PrestigeWorldwidewidewide..…

      OK guys look up a few posts =P

      1. Thinkering like a Boss
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        ok C then

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

    Son and Watkins to
    Salah and Antonio for -4 ?
    Gets 10 dgwers and Bamford out

    1. HuttonDressedasLahm
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Could backfire big time

    2. Sarri-ball
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Watkins has a double not sure id do him to antonio

    3. Sarri-ball
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Son to salah yes

    4. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Thanks. Yes it can backfire but I think I will risk it.
      I have Sterling and KDB so if Sterling doesn’t do it I can do Sterling to Son soon and free up cash.
      Watkins has all the stats but is just too frustrating to own. Then again he does have great fixtures not just this GW. And Antonio obviously does have some injury doubt. Decisions decisions

  9. Mufc202020
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    Sorry for the repost I got no response last time and would be interested in peoples opinions

    A) Son & Adams to Sterling/Mane & Antonio(-4)
    B) Kane Son Adams to Salah Antonio Vardy (-8)

    Thanks a lot

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Probably with losing the Spurs pair is affording to buy them back again. Unless you figure its a permanent thing.

    2. Tsparkes10
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      I like both tbf, think I prefer B 🙂 thoughts on mine below?

  10. Vovhund
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    Currently:
    Johnstone-McCarthy
    TAA-Justin-Coufal-Dallas-Stones
    Son-Salah-Bruno-Soucek-Raphinha
    Kane-Bamford-Wood

    What's the best move?:

    A) Son+Kane to KdB+Antonio (-4)
    B) Son+Kane+Wood+TAA to KDB+Vardy+Antonio+Wan Bissaka (-12)

    1. Neves say Neves
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Just A I think. Wouldn't be surprised if Trent hauls

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        I like B tbh. Thoughts below?

    2. Thinkering like a Boss
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      B is a bit aggresive dont you think?

      1. Vovhund
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        Actually, kind of defensive as I'm mirroring my worst mini league opponent 🙂 When I think about it, I don't like it. Also I'm not sure about Vardy starting two in a row

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

      A, I did -12. Son+Kane+Balbuena+Taylor > DeBruyne+Antonio+Chillwell+Stones

      BB with McCarthy, Bamford, Dallas, Pieters
      Salah Captain over DeBruyne?

  11. Neves say Neves
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    I need some help. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

    McCarthy Johnstone
    Robbo Dias Coufal Dallas Taylor**
    Salah Bruno Rashford Raphinha Soucek
    Vardy Bamford Adams
    1FT 0.1 ITB

    Taylor is very unlikely to start tomorrow so I would quite like to be rid of him. Adams needs to go too. Also tempted to do McCarthy to Areola, maybe worth it for a hit.
    Any thoughts?

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Are you using your bb? Makes a huge difference to transfers mate. Thoughts below?

      1. Neves say Neves
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        90% sure I will yes

      2. Tsparkes10
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        Adams, Taylor, Robo to Antonio, Stones, Chillwell (-8)?

    2. Vovhund
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Planning to BB?

      1. Neves say Neves
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        Yessir

        1. Vovhund
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 3 days ago

          Not sure I like it. It would take you -8 and still you would have 3 single GW players

          1. Neves say Neves
            • 3 Years
            8 months, 3 days ago

            surely triple leeds vs brighton is good enough for a benchboost? I could do McCarthy to Martinez with my spare cash for another hit which i think is a no brainer anyway

            1. Vovhund
              • 3 Years
              8 months, 3 days ago

              Depends if a better possibility to BB arises. GW26 perhaps

  12. BremerHB
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    A) BB this: Johnstone, KWP, Anguissa, Antonio, (-4)?
    B) Bring in KDB & Cancelo (-8) for Son & KWP?

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      B

    2. valurth
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      B

  13. Tsparkes10
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    Just about narrowed it down to 2. Any help will be mirrored either on your post or ask a question 🙂 would love a few responses

    1FT 0.3 itb Current team:
    Johnstone
    Coufal Justin Robo
    Raph Soucek Son Bruno Salah
    Vardy Bamford
    (McCarthy, Lowton, Adams, Dallas)

    Two options:
    A) Mccarthy, Robo, Lowton, Adams to Martinez, Dias, Stones, Antonio (-12) and Bb

    B) Son, Robo to KDB, Stones and save bb.

    1. HuttonDressedasLahm
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      C) Hold

      1. waldo666
        • 11 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        Actually don't mind this option. Maybe Justin to Stones if you want some City defence.

        1. Tsparkes10
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 3 days ago

          Hmmm. No city is scary though and I fancy Justin this week tbf.

    2. Neves say Neves
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      B I think mate. Every player would have to return for those hits to play off

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        True, think adams to Antonio could pay that off itself though :/

    3. mr messi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      I think B. -12 is too much

    4. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      B

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

      I did -12. Son+Kane+Balbuena+Taylor > DeBruyne+Antonio+Chillwell+Stones

      BB with McCarthy, Bamford, Dallas, Pieters

      I would do B for your team and play BB. You never know how the season is going to play out but now you atleast have a good playing Bench anyhow

  14. royals forever
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    If you had both Salah or KDB who are giving the armband and why?

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Salah. Has crap record vs both opponents and not on form.

    2. Heisenberg W. W.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Kdb

    3. HuttonDressedasLahm
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      On fence
      Salah out of form and tougher fixtures, but fresh
      KDB, good form (potential anyway) and great fixtures
      Looked very tired v Brighton though

    4. Sarri-ball
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Salah at the moment. More cause chasing and most my mates will go kdb. 50/50 calls like this worth going other way

    5. V-2 Schneiderlin
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      KDB slightly better fixtures and at the centre of everything - gets lots of chances (admittedly misses quite a few)

      1. V-2 Schneiderlin
        • 11 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        I think ManU and Burnley pretty tough defences for Lvpl / Salah

    6. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Tough. KDB slightly better differential in my ML at the top of my ML so I'm siding with him. Will sleep on it though.

    7. valurth
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Currently on Salah. Rested, 100% on penalties and 2 Home games. Liverpool Are also playing Sunday Thursday so a day extra rest in between games. Salah will definetly play 180 min while KDB might play 140. KDB will definetly be taken off if City leads by 2 goals

  15. Heisenberg W. W.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 3 days ago

    Would appreciate some quick input:

    1. Martin-Taylor-DCL for Martinez-Stones-Antonio (-8)

    Yes or No

    2. Bench boost 'McCarthy-Dallas-Holding-Adams)

    Yes or No

    1. Neves say Neves
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      1 yes, like it a lot
      2 nope

    2. valurth
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      1 yes
      2 triple Captain perhaps? Or get Wilson for Adams and BB

      1. Heisenberg W. W.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 3 days ago

        That would take me down to a -12

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

    Salah or Kdb TC?

    1. Heisenberg W. W.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Kdb

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

        Thanks

    2. Thinkering like a Boss
      • 4 Years

      follow your heart

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

        Thanks, heart says Bruno, but not with 4YCs, haha.

        1. Thinkering like a Boss
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 3 days ago

          then I would captain Bruno because I trust your heart :p

  17. mr messi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    Would you bench boost this team (will cost me -8) in the hope that Taylor plays 1 match? Don’t want to take a -12 to replace him. Or I can keep Son and not get KDB and swap Taylor for a dgw player instead.

      Similar to me. See my post on previous page
      You’d think if any Taylor plays the second game which is much harder for points

        True. Thinking I might have to not bb. Very annoying as I planned it all so well.

          Any advice for me?
          I’m trying to justify -12 for BB to get it out of the way!

            I replied on your post, I don’t think-12 is worth it

      I wouldn't.

    3. valurth
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      8 months, 3 days ago

      I did -12. Son+Kane+Balbuena+Taylor > DeBruyne+Antonio+Chillwell+Stones

      BB with McCarthy, Bamford, Dallas, Pieters
      Salah Captain over DeBruyne I think

    Klich to Soucek for -4 (play Soucek)
    or just play Bamford
    Thanks for any help.

    1. Thinkering like a Boss
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      play bamford

  19. ViperStripes
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    a) Play Mr 2 points Watkins (1st bench Bamford)
    b) Play Bamford, bench Watkins

    Currently set on A

    1. matiakez
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Id play Watkins. That Newcastle game alone looks excellent.

    2. Thinkering like a Boss
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Watkins for me

    Hi guys,
    Looking for some help on whether I should Bench Boost. I have a strong XI of mainly DGW players and then a bench of:

    - Non-playing goal keeper
    - Holding Vs Newcastle
    - Dier Vs Sheffield
    - Bamford Vs Brighton

    So basically strong single gameweekers.

    Should I bench boost or do you think I should wait for another big DGW?

    I have all other chips/wildcard available

    1. Heisenberg W. W.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 3 days ago

      In a similar situation. I'm itching to play the BB having put time getting decent players on my bench. Feels like a wasted effort unless I play my BB now.

    2. Hart-ake
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      I would be highly tempted to do so. Worth doing the GK transfer to make it work imo.

      1. DavidKent
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        What’s your thinking on the goal keeper? Keepers aT the 4.5 price range don’t average at over 4 to make up the difference?

        1. DavidKent
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 3 days ago

          Ahh, but if it’s my non-playing keeper then I’m getting 2 extra games. Makes sense.

          1. Hart-ake
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            8 months, 3 days ago

            yeah, exactly- for 2 extra games I think it's worth the hit and worth doing the bench boost if it's only for one hit I would say. Keepers at 4.5, you could go Areola or Johnstone, both good for saves. Can see WB keeping a clean sheet in one of them as well.

  21. MGD
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    A) Keep and save BB

    B)
    Mitchell -> Chillwell (another -4)

    BB this bench:
    McCarthy (lei)
    Chillwell (ful, lei)
    Bamford (bha)
    Smith-Rowe (new)

    -

    Doubt I’ll have a better bench anytime this season with a playing keeper and so on.

    Thoughts? 🙂

    How confident are prople leeds go well against Brighton?

    Feels like Brighton games are generally tight affairs

    1. Danstoke82
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      I’m praying it is as having to bench Bamford

    2. lugs
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      looks like a 1-1 game to me

      1. matiakez
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        That's what is putting me off using BB.

  23. Danstoke82
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    Think I’m locked and ready to go, my only worry is benching Bamford but don’t have much choice. Should I bench him?

    Team:

    Martinez
    Coufal Justin Stones
    KDB(TC) Salah Maddison Soucek Fernandes
    Kane Antonio

    Subs; Steer Bamford Dier Mitchell

    -8

    1. OneDennisBergkamp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      everyone else has a double so you gotta bench him

  24. CHARLIE HULL
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    Either of these worth a -4 (on BB)? Can afford both as well.

    a) Lowton to Stones
    b) McCarthy to Martinez

  25. OneDennisBergkamp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    stumped on what to do with Charlie Taylor, is this silly for -8?

    Taylor + McCarthy > Dias + Johnstone

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

      To BB?

  26. Vazza
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 3 days ago

    Would you do any of these for free

    A. Watkins to Antonio
    B. C. Jones to ESR
    C. Roll FT

    I’m bench boosting this week.

    1. Danstoke82
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Possibly A. Risk v Reward. Might be fun having Antonio.

    2. OneDennisBergkamp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      probably B because ESR more nailed

      • 7 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

    Would you bench boost this? Already taken -8 and don't want to take any more hits

    1. Heisenberg W. W.

      No

    What would you do here?Do you think its worth to use BB or just get Kdb(c)?

      Just get kdb c

    2. waldo666
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      I wouldn't BB, Taylor and Balbuena might not even play one let alone both.

    3. wulfrunian
      • 4 Years

      cheers both.

  30. tim

    Johnstone or Fabianski for DGW?

    Cheers
