‘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.

      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

            Will you captain Salah?

            1. Freddiemac123
                1 month, 14 days ago

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

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

                Could backfire big time

                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

              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

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

              • 2 Years

              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)

                  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

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

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

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

              McCarthy Johnstone
              Robbo Dias Coufal Dallas Taylor**

              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?

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

                      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

                        Depends if a better possibility to BB arises. GW26 perhaps

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

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

                C) Hold

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

                    • 2 Years
                    1 month, 14 days ago

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

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

                  1 month, 14 days ago

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

                I think B. -12 is too much

                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

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

                • 8 Years
                1 month, 14 days ago

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

              2. TNB
                  1 month, 14 days ago

                  Kdb

                  • 11 Years
                  1 month, 14 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

                • Sarri-ball
                  • 11 Years
                  1 month, 14 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

                • V-2 Schneiderlin
                  • 10 Years
                  1 month, 14 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
                    • 10 Years
                    1 month, 14 days ago

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

                • The Count of Monte Cristo
                  • 8 Years
                  1 month, 14 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.

                  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

                  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
                    • 2 Years
                    1 month, 14 days ago

                    1 yes, like it a lot
                    2 nope

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

                    1. TNB
                        1 month, 14 days ago

                        That would take me down to a -12

                      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.

                      Johnston McCarthy
                      Dias Chilwell Coufal KWP Taylor
                      Bruno KDB Soucek Salah Raphinha
                      Vardy Antonio Bamford

                        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 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.

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

                        Currently set on A

                          Id play Watkins. That Newcastle game alone looks excellent.

                        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. TNB
                            1 month, 14 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.

                            1 month, 14 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

                              1 month, 14 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

                                1 month, 14 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

                                  1 month, 14 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.

                        2. MGD
                          • 4 Years
                          1 month, 14 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

                            I’m praying it is as having to bench Bamford

                            looks like a 1-1 game to me

                              That's what is putting me off using BB.

                          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

                            everyone else has a double so you gotta bench him

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

                          a) Lowton to Stones
                          b) McCarthy to Martinez

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

                          Taylor + McCarthy > Dias + Johnstone

                            To BB?

                            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.

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

                              probably B because ESR more nailed

                              Play Soucek or Bamford?

                                Soucek because of DGW

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

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

                                  Just get kdb c

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

                                Johnstone or Fabianski for DGW?
