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.

    Son + ESR -> Grealish/Ziyech + Lookman for a -4? Playing BB.

    1. MarkoSD
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      yep

    2. Hiddenpaw
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      I don’t think so. Son could destroy SHU

  2. Millie7
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Mcarthy(DGW)
    Dias(DGW) - Holding - Yedlin - Targett(DGW)
    Salah(DGW) - KDB(DGW) - Son - Fernandes(DGW)
    Bamford(DGW) - Adams(DGW)

    Martin - Mitchell - Reidewald - DCL

    think it has the appearance of looking better on paper than it actually is. Half the DGW players are most likely only going to be playing one.
    Considering both FH and WC....any suggestions?

    1. ameisin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      McCarthy, Bamford & Adams definitely only have SGW - you might've missed the Leeds v Sou news.

      Maybe Adams > Antonio & Yedlin > Coufal, depending on how much ITB.

      1. Millie7
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 11 days ago

        ah yes, I've been away for a few days...thats changed things!! Thanks for the advice...i had something similar in mind!!

  3. MarkoSD
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    rp
    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)

  4. Shark Team
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Should I sell Fabri Balbuena DCL for -8 and BB (I also own Taylor)
    Or
    Should I avoid BB and keep all those four on my bench? Probably TC Salah it is then

  5. Tomsk
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Is Antonio on penalties if Noble not on pitch?

    1. aleksaa2
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      Yes

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      Hope so

  6. Eh, just one more thing ...
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Any word on who is available for Villa?

  7. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Yay or nay... Son+Adams >> KDB+Antonio (-4)? Will save the BB if so.

    Johnstone*
    Robbo*, Dias*, Lowton*, Coufal*
    Salah*, Bruno*, Soucek*, Son, Raphina
    Bamford
    (McCarthy, Dallas, Adams, DCL!)

    1. aleksaa2
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      I'd do it

  8. Champions League Varane
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Are we not missing a trick with West Ham defense especially Creswell? Two cs looks likely.. (12 points) well capable of assists and bonus points aswell. Would love to triple up and I might FH just to do it.

    1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      The Og-monster is an interesting prospect also - gets up for corners

  9. Original - Wolves Ay We
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Why is the RMT tool still showing my GW18 FH Squad?

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      To wind you up

      1. Original - Wolves Ay We
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 11 days ago

        Well it ain't working. 😀

  10. Shatner's Bassoon
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    How are KDB owners feeling about triple captaining him? Yay or nay?
    I'm still on the fence. The longer I go undecided the more chance I just play it at 10:55 tomorrow morning.

    1. CR7 is Home
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      Tiredness ehh?

    2. Tambling5
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      Not convinced he'll play two full games, so I think just captaining him is enough.

  11. cutch
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Martínez
    Chilwell, Cresswell, Dias
    Bruno, Salah, Grealish, Bowen
    Vardy, Antonio, Bamford*

    Bench: McCarthy*, Dallas*, Anguissa, Mendy

    0 FT

    A) Mendy -> Cancelo (-4), start Cancelo and bench Bamford
    B) Mendy -> Cancelo (-4), and Bench Boost
    C) Save, so there would be neither the -4 hit nor the BB

    Cheers!

    1. Dr. Mantis Toboggan
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      I think C

      1. cutch
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 11 days ago

        Cheers. And what about promoting Salah to TC?

        1. Dr. Mantis Toboggan
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 11 days ago

          Not for me personally, I don't trust anyone with the TC this week

  12. Henryyy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Good to go lads?

    Martinez
    Robbo Coufal Dallas
    KDB Grealish Son Bruno Salah
    Antonio Bamford

    4m - Holding Mitchell Brewster

    1. Dr. Mantis Toboggan
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      Love that front 7, I'd say you're well set

    2. Bielsa's Blue Bucket
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      Grealish and Bruno worry me as an owner. Surely both can't get booked and suspended for the second game 🙂

      1. aleksaa2
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 11 days ago

        Famous last words.

    3. Millie7
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      Holding over Dallas surely?

  13. Dr. Mantis Toboggan
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Will give my two cents on some other questions now, would love some advice on the below:

    A) Lowton -> Stones
    B) Lowton, Watkins -> Stones, Antonio -4
    C) Targett, Adams -> Stones, Antonio -4

    Obviously B and C were a lot more appealing before the Newcastle game was added, reluctant to lose Villa players now but the Antonio gamble is very appealing.

    1. cutch
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      Maybe A. As you said, losing Villa players is not appealing now. Maybe if it was with no -4 hit involved...

  14. Firminoooo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    BB this GW

    A) KdB and Brewster
    B) Foden and Vardy

    1. Dr. Mantis Toboggan
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      B

  15. Captain_Shirokov
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    really can't decide whether or not to play TC

    1. CR7 is Home
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      Save when not sure

    2. Tambling5
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      Still half the season to go with likely many other DGWs. You'll be glad to have it up your sleeve!

  16. lindeg
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Is fabianski fit?

  17. Zen Arcade
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    I feel like every article is either trying to part me with cash through some gambling con like this or Football Index or its a load of fluff from a so-called "Pro Pundit," I miss Big Numbers, Say What? etc. Those articles were worth the entrance fee.

    1. Brosstan
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      Members shouldnt have to see articles from Fantasy 5, Football Index etc

      1. Zen Arcade
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 11 days ago

        I agree. I also don't want to see that earwax ad again but the one about sexy PJs is fine.

  18. tissae
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Would you do that?

    Grealish + Son -> KDB + Soucek for -8. (already have Kane)

    1. veedub1989
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      Yes

  19. footballcandy
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Balbuena or Dawson as 2nd WH defender?

    1. Tomsk
      8 months, 11 days ago

      Has to be Dawson

    2. ppv
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      Dawson

  20. lekalatch
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Two questions:
    A) Picking to City defenders on my FH. Which two from Cancelo Stones Dias?

    B) Is Ziyech worth a punt on a FH?

  21. Kasper the ghost keeper
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Any Mane owners reluctant to lose him for KDB or is it the obvious move?

    1. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      Yeah. Maybe go Foden and upgrade Brewster to Vardy on BB.

  22. farqy
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Hi!

    Which of the following transfer options do you consider best:

    A) Adams & Neto ---> Antonio & Soucek (-4pts)

    B) One of the above transfers only (if so, which?)

    C) None of the above.

    Cheers!

    Who scores more points this week? DGW Wood or SGW Son?

    Use BB?

  25. alfast1c

    Mendy
    AWB, Chilwell, Dias, Cresswell, Cancelo
    Bruno, Salah, KDB, Grealish
    Wilson

    What u think of this FREE HIT team ?

  26. Dele
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Already have Martinez, money not an issue...

    Johnstone or DDG on a bench boost?

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

      Johnstone. Will be better for your team structure long term.

    2. CR7 is Home
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      Westham?

    3. mdm
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      DDG. Not even close

  27. Bonus magnet
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Does FH have any impact on team value at all?

    1. Zen Arcade
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      no

    2. Original - Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      No. Only price changes that happened to your GW17 players will affect the team value when you got them back for GW19.

      1. Bonus magnet
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 11 days ago

        Thanks both

  28. Daniel Jebbison

    1. Daniel Jebbison
