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.

    Is it worth taking -12 for this DGW?

    Raphinha / Kane / Saiss / McCarthy >>> KDB / Antonio / Stones / Martinez

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Additional fixtures takes it down to a -4 net so probably worth it

      1. FPL ElasticO
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        This will be my team if I take -12. G2g??

        Martinez
        Robbo / Stones / Coufal
        Salah (TC) / KDB / Son / Bruno / Soucek
        Bamford / Antonio

        Bench:: Forster / Targett / KWP / Brewster

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 1 day ago

          GTG but TC KDB over Salah

    2. Pumpy Pro
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      -12 and losing Kane to end up with players so many have is too much imo. - 8 tops
      Antonio may only play 1 game and Martinez got city. Game could even be off, we don't know

  2. Mikey44
    • 11 Years
    4 months, 1 day ago

    BB in play:

    Johnston
    Dias Justin Coufal Taylor
    Salah Fernandes KDB Soucek
    Vardy Antonio
    Subs: Mccarthy Bamford Raphinha Dalls

    Would you take a -4 to bring in a Fulham defender for C.Taylor or leave it? Can't afford anyone else. Thanks

    1. doher.ty
        4 months, 1 day ago

        I would not bring in a Fulham defender

      • footballcandy
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        leave it

    2. TheDragon
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      How does this look for this week? 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)

    3. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Repost;

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

      1. Reeker
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        Everton don't play until the 27th. He'd probably be back by then

    4. doher.ty
        4 months, 1 day ago

        Bamford to Antonio for a -4?

        Would mean benching one of Soucek or Coufal

        1. Steve The Spud
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 1 day ago

          Not for me

        2. TheDragon
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 1 day ago

          Obviously not!!

          1. doher.ty
              4 months, 1 day ago

              Sorry for asking, didn't know the #1 in the world was on here.

          2. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔

            No

            No

        3. Gudjohnsen
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 1 day ago

          Pick one for gw19

          A. Antonio
          B. Abraham
          C. Giroud
          D. Cavani
          E. Watkins

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            4 months, 1 day ago

            A

        4. Hryszko
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 1 day ago

          Who's my best captain option for this DGW?

          1. Salah
          2. KDB
          3. Bruno

          1. Obi Wan Elokobi
            • 9 Years
            4 months, 1 day ago

            KDB. Playing a depleted Villa team with hardly any training and Palace. Both at home

          2. TheDragon
            • 3 Years
            4 months, 1 day ago

            Salah or KDB

            KDB if you are confident he doesn’t get a rest

        5. Obi Wan Elokobi
          • 9 Years
          4 months, 1 day ago

          A or B from these?

          A). Rashford (-4)

          B). Son

          B is better isn't it

          1. TheDragon
            • 3 Years
            4 months, 1 day ago

            Probably B

          2. aleksaa2
            • 4 Years
            4 months, 1 day ago

            Yup

        6. Goldfinch
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          4 months, 1 day ago

          A) Vardy+Coufal
          B) Antonio+Cancelo

          A or B for -4 hit? Already have Dias and no west ham defence

          1. Pukki Party
            • 3 Years
            4 months, 1 day ago

            A

          2. doher.ty
              4 months, 1 day ago

              This is a tough one. I'd say A just.

            • aleksaa2
              • 4 Years
              4 months, 1 day ago

              A by a mile for me

          3. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
            • 4 Years
            4 months, 1 day ago

            Is it safe to do moves before price changes?
            A bit crazy but 0.4 swings incoming...

            1. aleksaa2
              • 4 Years
              4 months, 1 day ago

              This season I'd say no, every other probably. Too many things could happen just before the deadline because of C.

            2. liner
              • 4 Years
              4 months, 1 day ago

              Its not like there is a 5 days gap between now and gw19. Do it tonight

              • 4 Years
              4 months, 1 day ago

              Not going to get much information from tonight to tomorrow deadline don’t see why not do the moves

          4. 2EyedTurk
            • 5 Years
            4 months, 1 day ago

            I fancy BB this week and wildcarding the week after. With that in mind who would you punt on for GK+Def+Forward

            Not a massive budget, so who would you go for?

            1. doher.ty
                4 months, 1 day ago

                I think we need a bit more information. Who do you own, whats the budget, etc...

                Off the top of my head for a punt - Areola, TAA/Robbo, Antonio or Werner

                1. 2EyedTurk
                  • 5 Years
                  4 months, 1 day ago

                  Fair enough. I will have 17.0. currently thinking of Johnstone, Cancelo, Antonio

                A Son kane and laca To Salah vardy antonio (-8, but playing bench boost so its practicly -4)

                B kane and dalas to vardy and stones, keep son and laca but no salah - only -4 (which is -2 actually)

                C son and laca to salah and antonio, keep kane -4

                I'm pretty set on doing Lowton, Son & Kane -> Cancelo, KDB & Antonio for a -8.

                My question is though, is Dallas - > Dias worth an additional -4?

                Tempted to bring Ederson in for Fabianski (-4). Thoughts?

                    I think it's probably a good move assuming Fab is out. The only concern is it locks you into only two outfield Man City players, so down the line could be difficult to manouver.

                      Easy switch to Martinez somewhere down the line though. Unsure of what to do.

                    I wouldn't, 4p is a CS and Villa could score.

                      Yeah, just wary of Fabianski not playing at all which means I'd be down to 10 players.

                  Son to KDB for the DGW - what’s the best route?

                  A) Martial to Antonio
                  B) Robbo to Chelsea/Utd defender

                    A if you fancy taking a risk on Antonio and want to keep Robbo

                      4 months, 1 day ago

                      I considered both A and B for a hit to bring KDB in. Realized I had more money itb then I thought so ended up just doing Son to KDB for free.

                      Potentially - if I had faith KDB would play both

                          I’m a sucker for punishment 🙂

                          KDB is such a huge differential in the top 100k, owners have been so unlucky, I refuse to miss out on his mega haul which will fire me into the top 10k

                          Don’t love the United game for salah but obv it’s salah so you can’t go that wrong triple captaining him in a DGW

                    I think Bruno is being overlook for C/TC this week. (liv, ful)

                    - Two away games and he's amazing on the road
                    - Liverpool not great defensively this year and poss without Matip
                    - Fulham poor and have a lot of tough games in short space of time
                    - Man U playing with confidence and this is their cup final

                      1 yellow card would mean only 1 game though

                      4 yellow cards ... may be suspended for Fulham game

                        4 YC is too much risk for the C or TC this week imo.

                        For captains I always look for fixtures, home vs away and form, therefore KDB is a better option imo.

                        I'd counter with the YC risk (vs. Liverpool probably an elevated risk of getting one), his reduced output when Pogba is playing recently (5 of his 6 double digit hauls came with no Pogba, all 2-3 pointers have been when Pogba has played 90) and fact that Fulham aren't as poor as people think (though I recognise they will be potentially tired)
