Pick the best Gameweek 19 players for a free chance to win £10k with Fantasy5


Sponsored by Fantasy5


We’re back for another stab at Fantasy5 – the game that gives you the chance to win £10,000 for FREE.

All you have to do is pick one player from each of five nominated fixtures for the upcoming Gameweek. If all of your selections score more points than their respective Fantasy5 ‘points targets’, then you win.

And that looks even more achievable in Gameweek 19, with some points targets appearing more generous than ever.

Fantasy5 is easy to play as it follows the exact same scoring system as FPL, just without the bonus points.

It’s also the fastest media outlet for live Fantasy points, displaying all player points from the five games in question, as well as the live score and time.

For the more detailed lowdown, head here.

The competition is limited to one entry per person per round and selections must be submitted before kick-off of the first eligible match.

If two or more entrants correctly select five players who all score more than their points target, then the prize pot is split among all winners.

GAMEWEEK 19 FIXTURES

The five matches in this round of fixtures are:

  • Liverpool v Manchester United
  • Manchester City v Crystal Palace
  • Arsenal v Newcastle United
  • West Ham United v West Bromwich Albion
  • Leicester City v Chelsea

The deadline is at 16:30 GMT on Sunday 17 January.

SCOUT’S GAMEWEEK 19 PICKS

Bruno Fernandes (6.5) only needs to find the net against Liverpool on Sunday afternoon, and avoid his fifth yellow card of the season, to eclipse his predicted points total for Gameweek 19.

And that might be easier than usual considering the Reds have conceded five penalties this season, the joint-third-highest in the Premier League thus far.

Vicente Guaita (2.5) will have his hands full when Crystal Palace travel to Manchester City on Sunday evening which could help him score the three or more points needed here.

He has eclipsed two points in six of the last eight FPL Gameweeks, earning an additional for saves on four occasions. Facing Manchester City’s attackers will certainly help him try to repeat that feat at the Etihad Stadium.

Arsenal may have been disappointed with their 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace on Thursday night but they did keep a third successive clean sheet.

I fancy the Gunners to get another one against Newcastle and if David Luiz (5.5) starts, which he did against the Eagles, then as long as he stays booking free, he would hit the six-point threshold.

Vladimir Coufal (6.5) is my pick from the West Ham defence as they prepare to host a West Bromwich Albion side that has failed to find the net in three of their last four Premier League matches.

They are also the worst side in the division over that period for conceding chances down their left-hand side of the pitch, which Coufal will face as West Ham’s marauding right-back.

Jamie Vardy (6.5) faces a Chelsea defence with only one clean sheet in the last seven Premier League matches, their last on the road coming in a Gameweek 9 win at Newcastle.

Meanwhile, the Leicester striker has accrued two goals and five assists in his last five at the King Power Stadium.

LOGAN’S FPL’S GAMEWEEK 19 PICKS

While James Milner’s (2.5) minutes have been limited of late, as Liverpool’s captain he is could be back in the starting XI for a crucial top of the table clash with Manchester United. If the Reds manage to shut-out the Red Devils with Milner on the pitch, or if he scores a penalty, he will eclipse his points projection.

Cheikhou Kouyaté (2.5) is a riskier pick although as a midfielder he won’t be punished by Manchester City’s goal-scoring exploits. If he can use his threat at set pieces and/or keep an unlikely clean sheet then Kouyaté will be a winner.

Alexandre Lacazette (6.5) may have failed to find the net against Crystal Palace but he still has four goals in as many Premier League matches.

Michail Antonio (6.5), and Jamie Vardy (6.5) are both potential goal-scorers and/or assisters who should each play past 60 minutes in their respective games.

    Really through me. Any news on the likleyhood he's back this year?

      "we're not sure yet"...worst case sounds like I may get West Brom out of him. Its not like he's going to come on for 5 mins

  2. Stormbringer22

    Who would you rather bring in - Cancelo or Dias? Have no City players

    1. Rains of Castamere
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Dias more secure, Cancelo more chance of a big haul

      1. Forever In Our Shadow
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Both

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

      Cancelo - his eventual hauls will make up for the odd benching

    4. King Kohli
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Cancelo

  3. King Kohli
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Which move has the more upside?

    A. Kane > Vardy
    B. Raphinha > Soucek

    Martinez
    Cancelo Stones Coufal Konsa
    Salah KDB Bruno Raphinha*
    Kane* Bamford*
    Meslier Adams Anguissa Taylor

    1 FT 0.1 ITB

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      B

    2. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      B

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

      I would say A.

      80%+ ppl here underestimate the damage can be done by Vardy in 180 minutes.

  4. Lord Flashheart
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    is it worth it?

    Son kane and laca

    To

    Salah vardy antonio

    -8, but playing bench boost so its practicly -4

    yes or no?

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

      Yes

    2. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      I’d keep Kane if you can. Why not go against the grain and go Mane instead of Salah?

      1. Lord Flashheart
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        possible. penalties and he is due thou...

  5. Forever In Our Shadow
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Hey guys. What do you think of this?

    Steer Son and Laca to McCarthy (or up to 4.7 keeper) Salah Antonio -8. Then BB?

    Team would be;

    Martinez McCarthy
    Dias Cancelo Dier Holding Coufal
    Salah KDB Bruno Soucek Raphinha
    Kane Antonio Bamford
    0ITB

    1. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Still got WC FH TC left too.

    2. Rains of Castamere
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Looks good to me... possibly consider Areola? Although I guess McCarthy will soon have the rearranged double.

      1. Forever In Our Shadow
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        That’s my thinking with McCarthy. Areola a good shout though.

    3. King Kohli
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      I'd keep BB for 26 as you have all chips remaining.

      1. Forever In Our Shadow
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Mmm I know. I might just do Salah and Antonio. Was planning them for a while. Would give me all the combos with the chips later on.

  6. Rains of Castamere
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Go hard or go home... currently considering this:

    Son, Kane, Lacazette OUT
    Salah, Vardy, Watkins IN

    6 games for the price of 3 for a -8 hit.

    Yes or no?

    Would give me 14 DGWers and Smith-Rowe

    1. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Balls in boy.

      1. Rains of Castamere
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Yes sir

    2. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Yes and BB

    3. Tsparkes10
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Like it

    4. The Big Fella
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Watkins?!

      1. Rains of Castamere
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Two fixtures, scored heavily against Arsenal and Liverpool so why not a goal at City? Then NEW after that. Seems a good shout to me.

        1. The Big Fella
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          I am trying to choose two between Antonio, Watkins and Bamford and I was debating benching Watkins, despite the double as they may all be fatigued or not at full strength from COVID

  7. RealSocialDads
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    A. Wood -> Antonio - 4
    B. Play Wood

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      B for me

  8. The Alli Way
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Fabianski (McCarthy)
    Robertson Chilwell Dias (Coufal (Dallas))
    Salah (C) Bruno Son El Ghazi (Soucek)
    DCL Bamford Rodrygo

    Playing BB

    A) DCL > Wilson
    B) DCL > Antonio
    C) DCL > Wilson and Fabianski > Ederson (-4)
    D) DCL > Wilson and McCarthy > De Gea (-4)
    E) DCL > Reid and Son > KDB (-4)

    Thanks!

  9. Ajax Hamsterdam
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    I am so tempted to sell Smith Rowe for lookman, but keeping the arsenal mid means I could have 2ft following gw which could be very precious. Plus arsenal has a nice fixture.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks

    1. Jimbo-Jones
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Keep him. At 4.4 he's a great bench player given he's starting and has good stats.

  10. Sir_Dunc
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    A. Robertson, Barnes, Grealish

    Or

    B. 5.7m Def, Rashford, Foden (have KDB and Bruno so would be doubling up)

    1. Tsparkes10

  11. Bullet Eder
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Which defensive trio is best if on wildcard?

    A. Cancelo, Shaw, R James

    B. Stones, Coufal, Chilwell

    1. Zenith UK

  12. jayzico

    Which Leicester mid would you go for if you had to? Maddison not fully fit?

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Barnes

      1. aleksaa2
        • 5 Years

        +1

    2. Zenith UK
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Barnes

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

      Yeah, thought you'd say that. Best mid for up to 7.4? Got Souchek and Foden

  13. sirmorbach
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Lads, after sound advice, I'm between the following and I'd much appreciate your thoughts:

    McCarthy / Steer
    Robertson / Dias / Cresswell / Saïss / Dallas
    Salah / Bruno / Son / Grealish / Soucek
    DCL / Watkins / Bamford

    A. Steer and DCL out / Martinez and Antonio in (- 4)
    B. Steer, DCL, Robbo, Son out / Martinez, Antonio, Stones, KDB in (- 12)

    - 12 sounds too much, but bench boost could make it worth... I guess. What do you think?

  14. Old Gregg
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    What move please?

    a) Wilson > Antonio
    b) son + (Burke) > Pulisic/Ziyech + Soucek (-4)
    c) son + Wilson > Soucek + Vardy/Werner (-4)

    1. Zenith UK
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      A. Wouldn't lose Son for that fixture.

    2. mcsteely
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      I think C with Vardy

    3. footballcandy
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      A

    4. Old Gregg
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Thanks all

  15. Zenith UK
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    I am a true idiot. Just took a -4 for this headache (bench one please);

    Martinez
    Cancelo, Cresswell, Dier
    KDB (c), Bruno, Son, Foden, Soucek
    Kane, Antonio, Bamford

    Steele, Konsa, Kilman

    BB? 1.1M ITB.
    I could do Kilman > Justin for another -4 (-8 for the week) and then bench boost?

    1. Sir_Dunc
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      So many options. You’ve done well to afford them all. Moving forward I would want to pick either 352 or 343 and invest accordingly in the starting 11. Maybe bench soucek?

    2. Old Gregg
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Probably just leave it. I would consider dier for konza if not bench boosting.

      Good team though

  16. mcsteely
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Got exact money for Son > Salah for -4
    No brainer, right?

    1. footballcandy
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Yes!

    2. In a Rush
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      I would yes

    3. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 10 days ago

      100%

  17. footballcandy
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    No Salah for me, what would you do?

    (Mane and Antonio -4) = 9 x DGWers
    (Son and Lacazette, save FT) = 7 DGWers

    1. Herman Toothrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      First one

  18. Sid07
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    1) dcl to Cavani ( play Bamford )
    2) dcl + Brewster to Wilson + Watkins (-4)

    1. footballcandy
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Antonio not an option for you?

  19. TwiggsJameson
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    So Martial. To sell or not to sell, that is the question.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Think it's a hold with SHU in GW20

  20. Hits from the Bong
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Should we be using either the TC or BB chip? Will we definitely get 2 more doubles?

    1. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Every team is different, if you have 4 players you don't want to bench then bb.

    2. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 10 days ago

      You definitely will get at least 2 more doubles. Mci, tot, avl, ful, and possibly others will still have 2 fixtures to rearrange after GW19 is over. See graphic at top of Crellin Twitter.

  21. Slitherene
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    G2G?

    Martinez
    Cancelo Maguire Coufal
    KdB Bruno Rashford Soucek
    Jesus Vardy Wilson

  22. 1
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years

    Hey guys, anyone know of a twitter thread or podcast that discusses other potential DGWs other than 19 and 26?

    Will be BB'ing in 26 so wondering how good the other TC opportunities might be vs 19

  23. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Would you BB this to get it out of the way?
    Forster Bamford Holding Rodrigo

    1. footballcandy
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Yes

  24. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Any update on DCL? I’d rather keep him longterm perhaps over Adams

  25. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    With slights doubt regarding Tony's fitness play:

    A) Martial (liv, ful)
    B) Wilson (ars, avl)

  26. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year

    Which of these would you do:

    A) DCL > Antonio

    Will McCarthy play?

    1. seanmcging
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      I think so yes.

  30. TheDragon
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    How does this look? Not Bench Boosting might triple captain

    Martinez
    Dias, Robertson, Dallas*
    Salah, KDB, Fernandes, Grealish
    Antonio, Bamford*, Adams*
    Johnstone | KWP, Mitchell, Bissouma

    A) Good to go
    B) KWP -> Coufal (bench Adams) (-4)
    C) Adams -> Watkins (-4)
    D) Something more drastic
