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.

      I'm TC on Salah

  2. Warby84
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Anyone considering TC on Dias???

    1. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      I’m not that bold but could work out

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

      Villa will score

    3. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      Could work but higher ceiling on KDB or Salah etc.

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

      Nah, that's just hoping for CSs. It'd be painful to watch those games.

    5. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years

      Sounds like Duffy all over again

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

        Duffy lol. Hilarious how people triple captained him

    6. Rochdale_Cowboy
      • 3 Years

      Up dias

  3. Tsparkes10
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    This bb worth it for -12?

    Martinez
    Dias Stones Coufal Justin
    Son Bruno Salah Soucek
    Vardy Antonio
    (Johnstone, Dallas, Raphinia, Bamford)

    Or -4 and no bb?

    Johnstone
    Dias Coufal Justin
    Salah Son Bruno Soucek
    Vardy Bamford Antonio
    (McCarthy, Dallas, Raph, Lowton)

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

      No. You'd want a minimum of 30-35pts from it to even be barely worth it

  4. Big Weng
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Bench Boost

    Forster / Justin / Alioski / Anguissa?

    1. Boly Would
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      Not for me

  5. Farke in hell
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Antonio or Jarrod Bowen? Already have Soucek and Cresswell.

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

      Antonio

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

      Antonio

  6. Plagued by indecision
    • 11 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Thoughts:

    A) Son > Salah and Kane > Antonio (keep Saka)
    B) Saka > Soucek and Kane > Vardy (keep Son)

    Both would be for -4.

    1. Boly Would
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      B

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

    Martinez
    Cresswell Dias Bednarek
    Grealish Salah(C) Bruno Son
    Antonio Bamford Kane

    Steer Dallas Mitchell Bissouma

    Would try to get KDB, if so - how would you do it? 0FT, 1.5 ITB

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

    McCarthy
    Zouma - Dias - Coufal
    (K)DB - Bruno - Son - El Ghazi - Soucek
    Kane - Watkins
    Macey - Bamford - Alioski - Bednarek

    G2G or buy a DGW GK and play BB?

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

      next time mate....

  9. Cak Juris
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Make it easy:
    A. Vardy
    B. KdB (-4 pts)

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

      B

    2. Wheato182
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      A

    3. Rochdale_Cowboy
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      A

  10. artvandelay316
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Does this look like a good squad?
    Lloris
    Cancelo, Stones, Coufal
    Soucek, KDB, Fernandes (C), Son, Rashford
    Vardy, Wilson

    Bench
    Forster, Holding, Mitchell, Brewster

    This is at a -4 cost, transferring Lacazette for Vardy and Saka for Soucek.

    Or alternatively I could do swap KDB for Salah, and Saka for Foden at the same cost of -4, but that would mean keeping Lacazette who I'm not that confident in?

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

    Would you start Holding or Smith-Rowe?

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA

      8 months, 11 days ago

      Rov

  12. RAFA THE GAFFA

    Repost sorry;

    Will KDB or Salah have over 100% EO?

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

      both probs

  13. AK_FC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    BB with this bench? FH used.

    Martinez / Bamford / Dallas / Brewster

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

      No

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

        What would be your plan for BB instead w/ FH gone?

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

          Not sure just don’t like Brewster. Take a hit to remove him and then Bench boost?

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

            Ya Brewster is tough. Would only have 5.7 to work with, so just didn't feel like it is worth it. Original plan was to bring in Rashida, but didn't feel like it is worth it with the loss of DGW

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

              Rodrigo * not sure what happened with autocorrect

  14. tbhogal
    • 12 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Start Dallas or Balbuena?

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      Will Balb play?

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

      It's literally start Dallas or no one

  15. Muscout
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    JWP to H.Barnes/Mount/Foden/Gundogan/El Ghazi

    And Bamford to Antonio/Watkins

    -4

    Should I do it? If so which ones

  16. Sun Jihai
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    LR's moves

    @lateriser12 5m
    Dice rolled.

    Kane, Son, Ayling -> Salah, Werner, Douglas (-8)

    Martinez
    Dias Stones Targett
    KdB Mo Rash Bruno
    Timo Bam-Bam Davis (lol)

    xx Mitch Burke Douglas

    Cap undecided between Kev and Mo.

    Thin squad but will spread funds soon. Good luck this GW!

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

      He's lost the plot.

      Davis?! No way is Werner worth giving up Ayling.

      He's effectively doing Werner vs Ayling + striker up to 8.5m which includes Cavani (who could be gold if Martial has a legitimate injury) or even Antonio.

      1. Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 11 days ago

        Agree - you really need to believe Werner is going to go off big time. Possible with the fixtures but it's punty on the basis of his current form.

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

      That bench is tasty

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

      I don't feel it for Kane at SHU, but Werner away to Fulham and Leicester doesn't inspire much confidence, either in appearance time or likely hauls.

  17. Wheato182
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Which one?

    A) JWP > Soucek
    B) Bamford > Antonio
    C) Both for a hit.

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      A

      B Bamford plays every week can Antonio?

  18. KUN+10
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    FFFIX bots expect KDB to score 14 or more and recommends the use of the TC chip. Thoughts?

    1. Rochdale_Cowboy
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      He could be due a rest. TC salah

      1. KUN+10
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 11 days ago

        with Man u & Burnley, dont feel great about it

    2. Pumpy
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      Wow, people follow fpl bots now? Game has gone

      1. KUN+10
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 11 days ago

        lol...I dont usualy pay any attention, just this week is special

  19. Jet5605
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Any comments about Antonio from Moyes that makes him a risk of not playing both games?

    1. Rochdale_Cowboy
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      He's a risk of playing any game full stop. Avoid

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

        This.

  20. g40steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Do I go with Salah or take a hit & add KDB & Dias/Cancelo?

    Wanted to get BB out the way?

    Johnson,
    Zouma, Robbo, Stones,
    Bruno, Son, Grealish, Salah
    Kane, Bamford, Watkins

    Martinez, Soucek, Coufal, Dallas

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

      I would bb that, Salah C

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

        Possibly Dallas to City def but leaves you with benching headache going forward.

        1. g40steve
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 11 days ago

          Cheers mate, no cash itb!
          Salah > KDB allows Zouma > Cancelo/Dias - probably a waste but CITY
          Get BB out the way I can pull funds out of bench?
          Was even considering KDB & Dallas > Sterling & Canc/Dias:)

          1. g40steve
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            8 months, 11 days ago

            Salah

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

            Yeah no KDB gives me the fear but I couldn't take out Salah for a hit. Zouma probably has a bigger goal threat than Cancelo and Dias.

            The same reason I'm Bbing get it out the way and concentrate on 1st team, also when wc25 comes I can focus on WCing for dgw26 with players for bgw29 without worrying about bb.

  21. deshawn7
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Martinez
    Robbo Cresswell Saiss Stones
    Bruno (VC) KDB(C) Son Soucek
    Kane Bamford

    Subs: Areola Lacazette Dallas ESR

    Worth the bench boost?
    Or should I TC for KDB?
    Have 1 FT as well

  22. Pukki Blinders
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Are any of the following worth a hit?

    A. Dallas -> Stones
    B. Mccarthy -> Mendy

    1. deshawn7
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      A is worth a hit

    2. Il Capitano
      8 months, 11 days ago

      A

  23. Jet5605
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Will BB this week and so happy to take a hit or two. Which option looks best?

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

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

    McCarthy - Rafinha - Adams - Balbuena    

  24. Lord Flashheart
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    here is a tricky mental excersice..

    i will be on BB, so each hit is worth -2 only , which of those hits would you take (choose as many as you want):

    A son to salah
    B kane to vardy
    C laca to anonio
    D dallas to stones

    1. Rochdale_Cowboy
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      A 100% B maybe the rest, nah

  25. Il Capitano
    8 months, 11 days ago

    1FT 0.3m ITB

    Johnstone
    Robertson Justin Lowton Coufal
    Soucek Bruno Salah Son*
    Vardy Bamford*

    McCarthy* - Raphinha* Dallas* Adams*
    * SGW

    Thinking about:

    A) Dallas > Stones
    B) Robbo + Son > Stones + KDB (-4)
    C) Robbo + Lowton/Dallas > Double City def (-4)
    D) Robbo + Son + Adams > Stones + KDB + Antonio (-8)

  26. Nice to Finally Michu
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Balbuena > Dawson worth a -4?

    1. Il Capitano
      8 months, 11 days ago

      I'd think so

    2. Ritchies Magic Hat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      If we are assuming that Dawson has taken his place then it has to be. Strongly considering it myself

  27. Easy Cheesy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Any idea when AVL will have their extra double gameweeks? I have martinez, nyland and grealish and trying to work out if I should get rid of nyland as part of a -8 bench boost to free up villa space.
    The -8 isn’t great - only ends up w a bench of Areola, Bamford, Dallas and Coufal.

  28. Don Rogers FC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    McCarthy to A) Martinez B)Johnstone for a -4
    C) Neither.

    Martinez best fixtures after DGW,

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

    Best option?

    A. Antonio (-4)
    B. Raphina

  30. Slitherene
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Should I take a hit & BB?

    Martinez ¦ Forster
