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.

    For this GW what's the preference

    A) TC salah/KDB or
    B) BB?

    1. Begbie.
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      A KDB

      1. Begbie.
        • 7 Years
        9 months, 14 days ago

        But it entirely depends on what your bench is.

      2. doher.ty
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 14 days ago

        None or this

    2. Nolberto Solano
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Totally depends on your bench...

      1. Djemba-Djemba
        • 6 Years
        9 months, 14 days ago

        I'd take on at least a -8 to have a decent bench that has a few DGs

    3. Brosstan
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      No general answer

  2. _Ninja_
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

    Who to get for Taylor?

    A. Cancelo
    B. Dias

    1. Begbie.
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      B

      1. Nolberto Solano
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        9 months, 14 days ago

        B - Safer to play both games

    2. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      A for me

    3. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Dias

    4. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      B safer
      A looks like he is due a 20 pointer!

    5. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Cheers all, might just play it safe.

  3. Twisted Melon
    • 7 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

    Anyone else going to TC KDB?

    1. Begbie.
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Leaning that way atm.

    2. Nolberto Solano
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      I probably will if I don't BB...

    3. Don Rogers FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Thinking about it. Rotation my only concern but that will of course be the same on any DGW.

      BB has gone as an option and will there be another chance outside of GW29 to get best value out of either of these two Chips.

    4. Don Rogers FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      I'm telling myself that with the league so tight Pep will have to start him both games.

    5. Ted Bovis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      He looked knackered in the last game, could be due a rest.

  4. RobinKerr1987
    • 8 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

    Worth using BB for the following?

    McCarthy, Saka, Holding and Dier

    Starting 11 is as follows:

    Martinez
    Dias, Stones, Coufal
    Salah, KDB, Fernandes, Soucek
    Kane, Bamford, Antonio

    1. Petey Pablo
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Borderline yes

  5. Nolberto Solano
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

    Bottomed:

    Would you BB this bench?

    Areola (CHE, MUN) - Bamford (BRI) - Raphinha (BRI) - Adams (lei)

    1. Petey Pablo
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Guessing at least 15-18 points from them, so yes

  6. Petey Pablo
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

    Greetings from dystopian America! Long time reader, first time RMT.

    I should drop Taylor + DCL for Dias + Watkins/Antonio (-4) and BB, right? Thanks!

    MARTINEZ/McCarthy
    CANCELO/ROBBO/DIAS/CHILWELL/COUFAL
    SALAH/BRUNO/GREALISH/SOUCEK/Son
    WATKINS/Bamford/Brewster

    1. Nolberto Solano
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Yes and I would go Antonio over Watkins

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Yes. Antonio

  7. Camzy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

    I caved and did Adams > Antonio for free. The Bigman's stats were a factor and also West Ham's nice fixtures out of the DGW. Didn't realize they had such nice fixtures after GW19. For the longer term reasons, I think it's a worthwhile punt. The fixtures this week are certainly there, I think I like the gamble all things considered.

    Now the last decision of the week... To TC Salah or not...

    1. Wakanda
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      who is your front three ?

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        9 months, 14 days ago

        Bamford, Antonio, Davis.

        I'm playing 4-5-1 this week. Just Antonio.

    2. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Salah over KDB final? What's the reasoning?

      1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 14 days ago

        Also, wanted to ask you, would you BB this to get it out of the way?
        Forster Bamford Rodrigo Holding...

        Don't have FH left so I think I should

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          9 months, 14 days ago

          No. You will get better opportunities.

          1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
            • 5 Years
            9 months, 14 days ago

            True, even I think so
            It's just that then my 2nd WC will have the burden of having money on the bench and all that...
            If I go with 15 WC'ers on my 26 WC then I'll get destroyed in GW29

            So really confused

            1. Camzy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              9 months, 14 days ago

              Yeah but if you go 15 DGWers in 26 you'll also be getting 8 fixtures vs 3 from this week.

              1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
                • 5 Years
                9 months, 14 days ago

                That's true yeah...
                All this would be so much easier to navigate if there's a team that has a DGW in 26 and still plays in 29 haha

                1. Camzy
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 11 Years
                  9 months, 14 days ago

                  It's possible. So I wouldn't rule it out. The likes of Spurs, Southampton etc with two games in hand can definitely play both.

      2. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        9 months, 14 days ago

        I wrote up a post a few hours ago. I'm pretty set, yeah.

    3. Big Ronnie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      I'm leaning towards doing it now BB it out of the question. Can't be worse than my last 2 of Sane and Mane!

  8. Lord Flashheart
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

    laca plays home to NEW, is it worth -4 to take a gamle on antonio?

    1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Only if you would rather have Antonio post DGW

    2. Tambling5
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      No. António minutes not guaranteed, I fear.

  9. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 5 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

    Should I BB this to get it out of the way? (Don't have FH left)
    Forster Bamford Holding Rodrigo

    1. Carlton P
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Get it out of the way?

    2. Tambling5
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Makes sense.

    3. NejiHyuuga01
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      It is not a burden to get it out of the way... And it won't even be the last opportunity to use it

  10. tabby98
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

    Can someone help me out here please

    McCarthy, Johnstone
    Robbo, Justin, Coufal, Alioski, Stones
    Salah, Bruno, Son, Soucek, Raphina
    Vardy, Bamford, Adams

    1ft
    What’s transfers should i make?

    Should I BB?

    1. Tambling5
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      You have four likely playing subs, so I would bench boost. You can also chill this week about who you put on the bench!

      1. tabby98
        • 6 Years
        9 months, 14 days ago

        Any subs to make?

        1. Yes Ndidi
          • 2 Years
          9 months, 14 days ago

          Adams is the weak link for this GW, but can you put any money to him to improve your lot?

  11. tissae
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

    Grealish -> Soucek for -4?

    1. Manani
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      whats wrong with grealish

    2. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      No way

    3. BOATIES FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      no

    4. aleksaa2
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      No

  12. Al-Chemy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

    Worth taking a hit to take out KWP for Cresswell?

    Downside would mean benching Dallas and playing Cresswell, but I expect West Ham to do better than Leeds given the extra game?

  13. Jet5605
    • 7 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

    Will BB this week and save WC and TC for later on. Which option looks best?

    A - Robbo & Son > KDB & Shaw for -4
    B - Robbo, Son & Balbuena > KDB, Shaw and Robinson for -8
    C - Son & Kane > KDB & Antonio for -4
    D - Son, Kane & Balbuena > KDB, Antonio & Robinson for -8

    Johnstone
    Robbo - Justin - Dallas - Stones
    Salah - Bruno - Soucek - Son
    Kane - Bamford

    McCarthy - Rafinha - Adams - Balbuena    

  14. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

    I had set up for BB and still playing 11 doublers with 3 Leeds players on bench ( for -4). My second keeper is McCarthy who now has single game at Leicester- problem is we don’t know if he starts or whether Forster might get start to give him more recovery time.

    Is a further-4 to get Areola or Johnstone worth it as they will both play 2 games and hopefully collect save points ?

    1. Tambling5
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      It's a fair bet. What has happened before to your team doesn't affect the maths of this one! You are not alone with a fouled up team with three Leeds. Join the club!

    2. Tomsk
        9 months, 14 days ago

        McCarthy will play imo. Only had mild symptoms and been back in training for few days.

      • Rinseboy
        • 9 Years
        9 months, 14 days ago

        How's the team looking? I would save with Mccarthy

        1. dunas_dog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          9 months, 14 days ago

          Thanks Team would be ( and thinking of captaining Mané as differential)

          Martinez
          Cancelo Dias Robertson Coufal
          Salah Mané Bruno Soucek
          Antonio Watkins

          McCarthy/ Areola? Bamford Dallas Raphinha

          How’s your team doing? You playing BB?

    3. CR7 is Home
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Going by my luck sofar, this is what I predict gonna happen in GW19

      - Grealish and Martinez out with Covid
      - Cancelo and KDB benched vs Palace
      - Bruno yellow vs Liverpool and miss Fulham

    4. Carlton P
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Anyone else WCing gw25?
      With me having 3 West Ham, wanting Kane back in and good fixtures for the big boys, I think it’s my plan and future transfers will be based around that
      Is there a DGW gw26 or blank??

    5. ABCDEFC
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Which move?
      A) Kane to Vardy
      B) Kane and Son to Antonio and KDB

      1. ABCDEFC
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 14 days ago

        B is for -4

    6. Jet5605
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Who is the better pick this week and going forward?

      A - Shaw
      B - Coufal

      1. ceerus
        • 6 Years
        9 months, 14 days ago

        b

      2. Boly Would
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 14 days ago

        B

    7. ceerus
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      1) BB with Yedlin, Wilson, Dawson, Martinez, no Salah in team, KDB (C)
      2) Salah TC, KDB VC

    8. Manani
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      DCL replacement?

      thinking maybe DCL + Son > KDB + 4.5m forward

      my 7th attacker (for the foreseeable future) will be Soucek if that's the case

    9. HonestBlatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      -8 hit and best defender for 4.3 or less with DGW?

      Transfers:
      Kane-->Antonio
      Saka-->Salah
      Bellerin--> X (4.4M or under)

      1. HonestBlatter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        9 months, 14 days ago

        so DGW defender 4.4M or under is the question...

        1. Pompel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          9 months, 14 days ago

          Think Gibbs /WBA is your only option. Would rather go with Struijk or Mithcell at 3.9

    10. BadgersBoys
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Would love a bit of help. Who scores more?

      A)
      KDB
      Foden
      Antonio

      or

      B)
      Son
      Bowen
      Vardy

      1. Manani
        • 9 Years
        9 months, 14 days ago

        A, but Foden/Antonio could easily not start and it will be B

        1. BadgersBoys
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          9 months, 14 days ago

          Yeah, that's my issue. KDB could also not start both games. I think Antonio will start both but minutes will be managed.

    11. Captain Vantastic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Would you do DCL and Son to Antonio and KDB for -4 tonight or tomorrow? It's a 0.4m swing if I wait.

    12. dillydally1982
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      If you HAD to pick one of Jesus or Sterling, who would you go for?

      1. I Love Lamp
        • 10 Years
        9 months, 14 days ago

        Sterling, he can lead the line or play wide

      2. Dr. Mantis Toboggan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 14 days ago

        Raz

      3. aleksaa2
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 14 days ago

        S

      4. Varcity
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        9 months, 14 days ago

        Be Jesus !! I’d save your money(or Sterling!!) for somebody else

    13. I Love Lamp
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Prefer any opinions on the following Vardy vs KDB team:

      A) BB + Vardy, Antonio, Son, and 2x City DEF (-8)
      B) KDB(c), Antonio (-4)

      **Have Salah, Bruno. Basically trying to weigh up Vardy vs KDB, plus keeping Son or not. Thanks for any replies

    14. Hryszko
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Am I G2G? BB is currently ACTIVE..
