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.

    Which move has the more upside?

    A. Kane > Vardy
    B. Raphinha > Soucek
    C. Do both for a -4

    Martinez
    Cancelo Stones Coufal Konsa
    Salah KDB Bruno Raphinha*

    1 FT 0.1 ITB

    1. Obi Wan Elokobi
      • 9 Years

      Personally I'd go B

    2. Tsparkes10
      • 2 Years

      B

  2. Big Col
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Should I still bench boost with;

    McCarthy, Adams, Bamford & Raphinha?

    Yay or Nay

    1. Apwilkin
      • 1 Year

      Same question. Only I have Dallas instead of Raph from Leeds.

    2. MarkoSD
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      bench is great but 2 games is 2 games

  3. bruuuno
    • 2 Years

    Could Benrahma be a good punt this gw? Anyone knowing how hos x stats are this season? Last years stats in championship was great

  4. JBF X1

      Thoughts on Watkins for the DGW?

      If I go him over Antonio, I can upgrade KWP to Stones...

      1. MarkoSD
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        yes

    • pundit of punts
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Very confused with last 3 picks on FH -

      A. Antonio + Martinez + Ogbonna
      B. Soucek + Alisson + Dawson
      C. Watkins + Fabianski + Dawson
      D. El ghazi + Fabianski + Ogbonna

      Have Coufal already fwiw

      Opinions please. 🙂

      1. Captain_Shirokov
        • 2 Years

        A but not 100% sure on double WHU defence.

        1. pundit of punts
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          I’m thinking of tripling even 😀

        Antonio Areola Coufal?

        2. pundit of punts
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          2 tough fixtures for Areola

          Martinez should get a cs vs Newcastle

      3. Disco Stu
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        B as Fabianski is a slight doubt

    • Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Is martinez/Bamford/Smith-Rowe/Yedlin worth a bench boost, or TC??

      1. French Gooner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Not worth it in my opinion

      2. MarkoSD
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        no

      3. golden skulltula 69

      ML rival who is 39pts ahead has KDB, I have Mane.

      A) Keep Mané and try to make ground
      B) Mané > KDB (C) -4

      1. Glokollur nr.1

        keep

      Sterling
      Feels like a differential.
      Worth a shout, will surely start, probably both games.

        • 8 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        I was going that way until I compared the stats, and KDB is much better, although I would be very concerned that KDB will get rested in one game and I dont think Sterling will.

        My initial BB plans got blown up with Leeds losing out on a game. I can swap out DCL for DGW Forward(Wilson/Watkins/Abraham) for a -4, but only if it is worth it to BB. I would still have four players with only a single game. Is it worth it with this squad?

        Martinez/McCarthy

        Stones/Justin/Targett/Holding/Strujik

        KDB/Salah/Bruno/SonSoucek

        Antonio/Bamford/DCL replacement

      6. dsefton
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        repost, planning a BB
        DDG Areola
        Cancelo Stones Coufal Lowton Tierney
        KdB Bruno Rashford Soucek (Son --> Salah?)
        Wilson (Laca --> Antonio?) Bamford

        https://twitter.com/David_Ornstein/status/1350071497793163264
        looks promising for Tierney?
        A) Son + Laca --> Salah + Antonio (for -4)
        B) Son + Laca + Tierney --> Salah + Watkins + Cresswell (-8) - can't do Antonio as would have 3 west ham already...
        C) Son + Laca + Tierney --> Salah + Antonio + 5.4m def not west ham (Justin?)
        D) Laca + Tierney --> Vardy + 4.6m def (-4)
        E) Tierney --> Cresswell (FT)

        1. Disco Stu
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          A looks very promising

      7. Mané Fuchs Given
          3 months, 25 days ago

          Martinez
          Chilwell, Dias, Coufal, Targett
          Son, Salah, Bruno, Soucek, Grealish
          Bamford

          Forster, Adams, Dallas, DCL

          1FT, 1.7ITB

          Really want to get Vardy in for the double but stuggling as to the best move. All would be for -4.

          A) DCL, Grealish > Vardy, Foden
          B) DCL, Chilwell > Vardy, Stones/Cancelo
          C) DCL, Adams > Vardy, Fabio Silva

          Leaning towards A. Don’t really want to lose Grealish, but the chance of a ban plus possible COVID maybe makes it the best option?

            Spurs and Jose aren’t good but Son was extremely unlucky. On another day he comes away with 2 goals and an assist considering how clinical he is. Away to Sheffield is a great game for him

          Mane, DCL and Douglas to KDB, Antonio and Cancelo(-8) gives me this.

            @bigmanbakar wrote this, should help you out with the Cresswell /Coufal:
            "Given the fact that West Ham have the standout double GW fixtures of all mid-priced defences, I analyze their full backs:

            Cresswell (20/21) vs Coufal (20/21)

            Mins per big chance: 1530 vs 1165

            Mins per chance created: 61.2 vs 61.3

            Mins per big chance created: 510 vs 582.5

            Mins per touch in the final third: 6.02 vs 5.24

            Mins per baseline bonus: 6.5 vs 6.9

            By looking at the underlying stats over the season, both defenders have been providing approximately the same level of goal threat and chance creation. Cresswell has created the highest number of chances of all West Ham players this season so he tends to do slightly better overall for bonus. I further dissect these numbers from GW12 onwards to assess the impact of Masuaku’s injury on Cresswell’s numbers:

            Cresswell (GW 12-17) vs Coufal (GW 12-17)

            Mins per big chance: 540 vs 450

            Mins per chance created: 108 vs 50

            Mins per big chance created: 540 vs 450

            Mins per touch in the final third: 4.7 v 4.6

            Mins per baseline bonus: 8.6 v 5.2

            What is telling is that despite the fact that Cresswell has been playing as a natural left back of late rather than as a third centre back in a back three, his numbers pale in comparison to Coufal over the recent weeks who out-stats him for both chance creation and bonus potential by a distance. Coufal is cheaper as well and with good fixtures to follow even after the double GW (BUR + WBA cry LIV avl ful), he would be my pick.

            This brings me to the end of the article. Pardon any glaring omissions/mistakes as I have been up all night writing this due to the quick turnaround.

              Tierney may not fit

            a. Son and Antonio
            Or
            b. Mane and Brewster for -4
            (Brewster would be on the bench, Justin or Target would play)
            Gw19(have no salah)

            Fook it. I may do a -12 tonight.

            Would have been a -8 had it not been for a needless transfer in GW17, but it is what it is.

            Genius or madness?

            Salah/Dallas/Adams -> KDB/Stones/Antonio (-8)

            Which of these would u choose for a -4?
            1. Dallas-> Cancelo. (Benching headache- (Bamford) but looks worth it.
            2. McCarthy -> Martinez. Villa's fixtures after City are great + possibly a few doubles. Also means I play Bamford this week.

            McCarthy.
            Robbo, Stones, Coufal.
            Salah (TC), Son, Mane, Fernandes, Soucek.
            Antonio, Bamford.
            Forster, Dallas, Brewster, Ferguson.

            Urgh, doesn’t sound like any clear guidance on Martial...
